An outdoor version of the Unforgotten Lives exhibit travels London, introducing the exhibition stories and work to thousands of tourists, visitors and workers. Created in part by Dr. Nicole Aljoe and the Ignatius Sancho’s London/Mapping Black London Research Team, Unforgotten Lives presents the stories of Londoners of African, Caribbean, Asian and Indigenous heritage who lived and worked in the city between 1560 and 1860 and are recorded in London’s archives. Exploring a range of experiences, these multi-layered stories speak of love, enterprise, wealth and family life; discrimination, hardship, resilience and resistance.
The exhibit is on display through March 2024. Visit the London Metropolitan Archives for more information: https://www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/events/unforgotten-lives-exhibition
