To commemorate Black History Month, Richmond Council is appealing for Black people who live, work or study in the borough to share their stories and experiences. The aim is for residents to come forward and help shape an exhibition which will include stories, experiences, photographs and videos. Stories will explore family histories, traditions, achievements, cultures, and experiences of racism. The exhibition will be shared online and in public spaces around the borough and will recognise the outstanding contribution that Black people have made shaping the borough and allow everyone to better understand the histories of fellow residents, colleagues and students.
You can see the first snippet of these stories online here.

Please note that this is a Council run initiative, which the Museum of Richmond is helping to promote; the Museum does not own this content and is not co-ordinating the exhibition. For more details on the project, please contact Fenna Maynard on 020 8487 5182.
