LOVE WALK VISIT BLACK CULTURAL ARCHIVES

13 February 2018

Last week a group of residents from Love Walk visited the Black Cultural Archives in Brixton to see an exhibition called Black Sound: Black British music’s journey of creative independence. Everyone was fascinated to learn about the Black British music’s history over the last 100 years from Swing to Calypso and from Reggae to Jungle and beyond. The exhibition was accompanied by different styles of music and video clips of black artists and winners of the Mercury Music Prize.

Afterwards our party sat in the cafe and did not miss their chance to try the delicious Jerk Chicken and Callaloo with rice and peas before walking back through Brixton in the winter sunshine. Everybody agreed that it was a lovely day out!
