SHARING OUR STORY: A LEGACY FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS

Is an event run by The National Archives in partnership with Every Generation Foundation.

"The impact of slavery and colonisation makes family history for the African Caribbean community a difficult and painful process.

However, family history can be a powerful resource in the healing, resilience and development of the commuinty. It acts as a motivator for young people, giving them sense of their identity and of achievement of their ancestors, as well as a wider perpective of their place in society"

I realise the National Archives is the bastion of colonial bullls**t but it may just provide a link to the history they kept from us for so long .......maybe?
