Historian Danny Friar explores the lives of people of African heritage who made Leeds and Bradford their home before the Windrush Generation
People of African heritage have been making Leeds and Bradford their home for over 300 years. This talk explores the lives of Black people living in Leeds and Bradford prior to the arrival of the HMT Windrush in 1948. The result of the research conducted by Danny Friar called ‘Before Windrush: Black People in Leeds and Bradford, 1708 – 1948’ for the Leeds Libraries in summer 2021, the talk will shed light on a long overlooked local history.
