We've now added two new interviews to our Contemporary Voices oral histories project! Now you can listen to Glynis Neslen and Janet Alder's stories by clicking on their photographs below. Thanks to our wonderful volunteers, It is now also possible to read a transcription of Glynis's interview and that of Joseph Bvumburai. Again, click on Joseph's picture below to go to his interview page.
Today we publish our third oral history interview for the Contemporary Voices part of our Africans in Yorks project. Joe Bvumburai's heritage lies in Zimbabwe, but he was born in Zambia when racial segregation was prevalent. At the age of twenty-two he came to Hull to study architecture at the Hull School of Architecture under a Swedish scholarship. Joe talks about his first experience of snow, rugby and the sights and sounds of Hull in 1982. He currently works as an architect in Hull inspiring others through his innovative buildings.
