Black Cultural Archives was founded in 1981 to collect, preserve and celebrate the contributions Black people have made to the culture, society and heritage of the UK.

Our unique and growing archive collection offers insight into the history of people of African descent in Britain and includes rare documents, photographs,  oral history testimonies and objects dating from the second century to the present day. Though our public programmes and partnership work with other organisations we enable a variety of communities to learn and connect with this often hidden history.

Black Cultural Archives is working on a major building project to open the UK’s first Black heritage centre in Brixton, London.
