Expectations exhibition: The Neil Kenlock Archive at the Black Cultural Archives runs until 28th Sept 2018

The Black Cultural Archives are hosting their first ever photography exhibition ‘takeover,’ using the photographs of accomplished Jamaican-born photographer and media professional, Neil Kenlock

Known for his captivating work focusing on key moments in post Windrush Britain, Kenlock’s powerful Expectations exhibition is no exception.

The exhibition is curated by Kenlock’s daughter, Emelia Kenlock, who uses a selection of his black and white prints to tell an honest and unique story of the African and Caribbean leaders who Kenlock was lucky enough to capture, many of whom are unsung heroes of British history.

Visitors will also see rare prints of key figures such as the formidable anti-discrimination, women’s and squatter’s rights campaigner Olive Morris.

There will also be a special print that captured a historic meeting between the community pioneer Courtney Law’s and of the Home Secretary of that time, Lord Jenkins.

Other prints in the exhibition include:

  • Darcus Howe (broadcaster and civil rights campaigner)
  • Lord David Pitt (Baron of Hampstead, Labour Party politician, GP and political activist)
  • Arthur Wint OD MBE (first Jamaican Olympic gold medalist and Jamaican High Commissioner)
  • Steve Barnard (first black BBC radio presenter with a reggae music show)
