Haringey Seeks Black History Month Film Project Participants

The north London borough wants to interview people for a Black History Month documentary

The London borough of Haringey is producing a new documentary for this year’s Black History Month celebrations, and is seeking current and past residents  of the borough to participate.

The borough is looking for potential interviewees for a short documentary film, looking at the impact of black people in Haringey over the last fifty years or so.

Contributors must be willing to discuss the impact of black people in Haringey, as well as suggestions for who to include and feature.

Councillor Bernice Vanier, Deputy leader of the Haringey council, told The Voice:“It’s time to remember, record, recognise the great achievements of black Haringey residents down the generations. People like Tony Jarrett who lived in Seven Sisters and achieved a gold medal at the 1998 Common Wealth Games.

“They are all ‘Haringey Heroes’ and in Black History Month 2016 we’ll be celebrating the huge change they inspired which has made Haringey the incredible place it is today.”

Filming of the BHM documentary will take place at some point on the 8, 9 or 10 September in and around Haringey and participants will need to be available for one of these dates to take part.
