Celebrating family history in East London
To attend please RSVP email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
Come and celebrate Every Generation Media's 10th birthday with our East London Routes family history day.
As 2012 marks the 50th anniversary of independence for Trinidad and Jamaica and the 25th anniversary of Black History Month, we play tribute to:
The stories we know.
The histories we've dug for.
The generations we've learnt from.
The heroes and heroines we applaud.
We'll have children's arts activities, author readings and debates on family values, preserving our history and choosing our heroes and heroines. National Archives will throw open their treasure trove of old photos of the Caribbean and we'll be running a workshop on tracing Jamaican, African and English family histories by people who have done it.
Contributors include: authors Patrice Lawrence, Jacqueline Walker ('Pilgrim State') and Kerry Young ('Pao'), Hackney campaigners Ian Levy and Pauline 'Hackney Heroine' Pearce, equality campaigner Simon Woolley, cultural campaigners and historians Arthur Torrington CBE, Nubian Jak,Stephen Bourne, Oku Ekpenyon MBE, and Angelina Osborne, family historians Guy Grannum and Hilary Porter, National Archives Caribbean Through A Lens Team Sandra Shakespeare and Sara Griffiths, Cllr Michael Jones, one of the youngest politicians in London, Guardian journalist Hugh Muir, Joy Francis from Words of Colour and Patrick Vernon OBE, founder of Every Generation.
