Founded into by Len Garrison back in 1981, the Black Cultural Archives is located in the heart of Brixton – the epicentre of Black British identity and culture for decades.


The Black Cultural Archives’ outreach has always been centred “collecting, preserving and celebrating” the cultural, ethnic and diasporic legacies, identities and consciousness of those of African and Caribbean descent in Britain.



Since its inception as a public cultural institution, the Black Cultural Archives has been nationally accredited as the leading heritage centre for black ethnic minorities in the United Kingdom due to the wide breadth of original archives dating from enslavement to contemporary Black British culture and arts that are transposed into exhibitions and events.


More information about the institution and upcoming events can be found here.
