About the Event

People of African heritage have been making Leeds and Bradford their home for over 300 years. This talk by Danny Friar explores the lives of Black people living in Leeds and Bradford prior to the arrival of the Windrush in 1948. The result of new research, the talk will shed new light on a long forgotten local history and ties in with the exhibition of the same name*.

Free but booking required - this talk will take place in-person at the Central Library, but may move online if circumstances change.
