Are you interested in contemporary British history or looking to embark upon a career in academia or preservation?

As part of our ongoing Black History Project, where we have been working with students to uncover the black history of Leicester by exploring our archives, the Library is offering a FREE trip to the Black Cultural Archives in Brixton, on Thursday 26 July. The BCA is one of Europe’s largest archives dedicated to black history, and contains decades of records detailing the history of black communities in the U.K. The trip will involve a tour of these fascinating archives, as well as a bespoke workshop from the BCA team on how to build a representative history using archives. This trip is a brilliant opportunity for anyone interested in contemporary British history, or wishes to embark upon a career in academia or preservation.

The trip is completely free and includes train travel from Leicester to London and lunch in Brixton. We will be allocating spaces on a first come, first serve basis, so please get in touch ASAP if you’d like to come along.

If you are not currently in Leicester and would still like to attend, please get in touch and we’ll see what we can arrange.

You can sign up by emailing us. Sign-ups close on Friday 20 July.
