SHS response to threatened closure of Black Cultural Archives

You may have heard news of the funding threat facing the Black Cultural Archives: https://www.standard.co.uk/go/london/arts/black-cultural-archives-funding-letter-a3978136.html

 

We would like to join with other organisations in showing our support for the Black Cultural Archives as an integral asset in our national teaching and research infrastructures and as the only national heritage centre devoted to preserving the histories of African and Caribbean people in Britain.

Below you will find our letter to the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, Jeremy Wright, calling for government support for the BCA.
