Event Details

Vanley Burke – ‘the godfather of black British photography’ – is joined by leading writer and campaigner Patrick Vernon OBE, creator of the 100 Great Black Britons list and co-author of the book, as they use a special selection of his iconic photographs as a starting point to explore the last 50 years of Black British history. With Vanley Burke’s body of work regarded as “the greatest photographic record of African Caribbean people in post-war Britain” (BBC Radio 4), they share a unique perspective on the history of 20th century Britain through the lens of one of its greatest photographers. This event is chaired by leading poet and archivist Panya Banjoko who is co-founder of the Nottingham Black Archive.
