10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Venue Leeds City Museum

Join local historian and researcher, Danny Friar, to explore the lives of Black people in Leeds and Bradford in the three centuries before the arrival of the ‘Windrush Generation’ in 1948.

Before Windrush: Black People in Leeds and Bradford, 1708 – 1948 was a research project carried out in summer 2021 and gifted to Leeds Libraries in October 2021 as a part of Black History Month.

This research is part of the ‘Before Windrush’ project, which
focused on the history of Black people in Leeds and Bradford between 1708 and the year the HMT Windrush arrived in England in 1948 – an event often considered the beginning of Black history in
the UK.

A FREE talk at Leeds City Museum, no need to book.
