EVENT: 19th September 2021 – Vanley Burke & Patrick Vernon, Black British History Through The Lens


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.
