Veronica White reflects on life as a Miss West Indies contestant. She is featured in the first ever photography exhibition ‘takeover’ at the Black Cultural Archives using photographs taken by Neil Kenlock.
Known for his captivating work focusing on key moments in post Windrush Britain, Kenlock’s powerful Expectations exhibition is no exception. The photos tell the honest and unique story of the African and Caribbean leaders of the 1960s and 1970s, who Kenlock was lucky enough to capture, many of whom are unsung heroes of British history.
His photos include the formidable anti-discrimination, women’s and squatter’s rights campaigner Olive Morris, Darcus Howe, Lord Pitt and Courtney Laws.
