Join us at Temple Newsam House for a live talk with local historian Danny Friar. People of African heritage have been making Leeds and Bradford their home for over 300 years. This talk explores the lives of Black people living in Leeds and Bradford prior to the arrival of the HMT Windrush in 1948. The result of the research conducted by Danny Friar called ‘Before Windrush: Black People in Leeds and Bradford, 1708 – 1948’ for the Leeds Libraries in summer 2021, the talk will shed light on a long overlooked local history.

Please book your free tickets via Eventbrite.
