With guest speaker Dr Kehinde Andrews, find out more about Black Education for Liberation and its links to BHM at the African Caribbean Centre in Leicester.
Lost Legends is a project run by Serendipity, supported and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Leicester City Council. Lost Legends is marking and celebrating the achievements of the African and African Caribbean community with the anniversary of 30 years of BHM in 2017. We are in the process of recording and collating the memories and achievements of our local trailblazers through oral history recording and the donation of brochures and other memorabilia. Lost Legends will culminate in an exhibition including the creation of a film in October 2017 at Newarke Houses and Gardens Museum and this will include the launch of information hosted on Serendipity’s website and a dedicated publication – 30 years 30 voices.
Exchange is a multifaceted event open to the general public to share memories, brochures, photographs and much more! We are still searching for BHM brochures for the years: 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1999, 2001 and 2004. This is a great opportunity for the community to get involved and help promote, learn and record BHM for future generations. Exchange on Saturday 11 February 2017 11am – 2pm situated at the African Caribbean Centre, Maidstone Road, Leicester, LE2 0UA.
Exchange includes a lecture from guest speaker Dr Kehinde Andrews, Associate Professor of Sociology at Birmingham City University.

The event will include a miniature exhibition of photographs and archive materials collected so far and some light refreshments.
