Black Cultural Archives' latest exhibition Black Sound follows Black British music’s journey of creative independence. On display until 7 November 2017.
Black Sound tells the story of 100 years of musical creativity and DIY ingenuity.
Overcoming the majority status quo of the music industry, Black British music has migrated from the margins to re-master the mainstream. This exhibition celebrates the pioneers that made it happen – the players, the promoters, the producers and the punters that changed Britain’s cultural history.
This nostalgic exhibition draws on Black Cultural Archive’s collection of ephemera, photographs, vinyls, cassettes, and music tracks to showcase the musical heritage of Black people across the UK. Audio-guided tours feature as part of the exhibition experience and sew together a rich social history with a powerful soundscape of Black Britain.
Free admission. Audio-guided tours are £3.
Tuesday – Saturday, 10.00am – 6.00pm (last entry 5.30pm)
