Making a mark: The early Black Press, 1817-1948

Periodicals have been produced by and for Black people in Britain for more than 200 years. This presentation introduces a handful of the more prominent titles and demonstrates how they attempted to reflect the needs of the communities they served.

This talk was presented online on Friday 9 October 2020 by S I Martin. S I Martin works with museums, archives and the education sector to bring diverse histories to wider audiences. He has published six books of historical fiction and non-fiction for adult and teenage readers.
