Black Cultural Archives


Founded in 1981, the Black Cultural Archives’ mission is to collect, preserve and celebrate the heritage and history of Black people in Britain.

In July 2014, Black Cultural Archives opened the U.K.’s first dedicated Black heritage centre in Brixton, London. This location allows for greater access to its archive collection, dedicated learning spaces and a programme of exhibitions and events that explore British history from a unique perspective.

The collection offers insight into the history of people of African and Caribbean descent in Britain. The bulk of the collection is drawn from the twentieth century to the present day, while some materials date to the second century. The collection includes personal papers, organisational records, rare books, ephemera, sheet music, photographs, and a small object collection. The Black Cultural Archives have also acquired the Runnymede Collection Library which is one of the most important libraries on race relations in the United Kingdom.
