During the webinar we will take a look at some of the Bucks Black History Museum Group’s meaningful objects that represent Black history as well as a short book recital from local author Tracey Harris and a steelpan performance. Plus explore some incredible objects from our museum collection such as artistic pots by ceramist Magdalene Odundo and much more.
The webinar is free to attend but we welcome any donations. The webinar will last for an hour to an hour and a half.
Another of our Bucks Black History Museum Group projects is the digital shoe project titled, ‘Looking Back, Walking Forward: a Black History shoe project’ which invites the Bucks Black community to get involved by taking a picture of their shoes to tell their story. This project was inspired by the late Mr Alphone’s wedding shoes which were donated to the Museum in 2020. Mr Alphonse’s shoes and story, represents a piece in the picture of the contribution made by the Black community to the history of Britain. You can see the shoes on display and read Mr Alphonse’s story at the museum.
