Black Cultural Archives host a tribute to the life and legacy of anti-racist campaigner and political activist Darcus Howe (1943-2017). This Sunday 9 April from 7-9:30PM, they invite the community to come together to honour the formidable cultural contributions of Darcus Howe.

#BCAFilmFest will host a free outdoor screening of, Mangrove Nine (1973) and Travels With My Camera: Is This My Country? (2006), alongside a showcase of Mangrove Nine archival artefacts and tributes.

Darcus Howe was a recent contributor to Guerrilla – a new TV drama series inspired by the British Black Power Movement. The first episode will be aired on Sky Atlantic this month. A collection of work by photographer Neil Kenlock used for the series will be on display at BCA.

BCA extend thanks to the family of Darcus Howe in appreciation of their generous support for this event.
