Since opening the doors to the only heritage centre in the country solely dedicated to Black heritage in Britain, we have welcomed thousands of visitors, from families of all ages to school groups. We have showcased five major exhibitions, heralding the achievements of Black Women, revealing the untold history of the Black Georgians to the ingenuity of Black British musicians.
