Black Cultural Archives


Founded in 1981, the Black Cultural Archives' mission is to collect, preserve and celebrate the heritage and history of Black people in Britain. Our new location will enable us to provide greater access to our archive collection, dedicated learning spaces and an exciting programme of exhibitions and events that explore British history from a unique perspective.

Our unparalleled and growing archive collection offers insight into the history of people of African and Caribbean descent in Britain. The bulk of the collection is drawn from the twentieth century to the present day, while some materials date as far back as the second century. The collection includes personal papers, organisational records, rare books, ephemera, photographs, and a small object collection. We welcome everybody to join us and unfold these fascinating narratives together.

Facilities include a cafe and a shop.
