African Stories – Contemporary Voices


Contemporary Voices is a collection of oral histories made by people of Black African heritage who have a connection with Hull and East Yorkshire. The stories reflect aspects of their lives or their family’s lives which relate to their African origins and to more recent experiences within this region. The collection is part of African Stories in Hull & East Yorkshire, a William Wilberforce Monument Fund Community Project supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Interviews and photography by Jerome Whittingham who specialises in supporting the voluntary sector, both locally in Hull and regionally.
