Launch of Black Cultural Archives catalogue

Last week I attended a celebration and launch event for the Black Cultural Archives. It was a momentous, and very joyous occasion, honouring the contribution of so many individuals to the work of the archives (in particular on this occasion the women involved in the Black women’s movement oral history project) and marking a real milestone: the opening up of the collections to visitors and the launch of the online catalogue.

This is what it looks like (in slightly squashed form – sorry):

Happy browsing!

Meanwhile, if this has really caught your imagination, the BCA is currently recruiting a collections manager to take the project through to the next stage. More details here.
