As part of Black History Month, the Outreach team at The National Archives set up a display at Roehampton Library. We shared a selection of our photographic records of everyday life in Africa and the Caribbean to a public audience. The display used these photographs to inspire and capture visitors’ memories on audio.
As part of Black History Month, the Outreach team at The National Archives decamped to a community library to capture people’s views of some of our photographic collection and celebrate Black History Month.
Photographs evoke memories of the past both individually and collectively. During this Outreach session it was evident that our collection provoked memories of times past and in distant places, thousands of miles from Roehampton Library.
