Who Do You Know?
As part of our forthcoming exhibition Our Histories Revealed and continued endeavour to mark African presence in Hull and East Yorkshire through as many mediums as possible, we are urging people to look through their personal collection of photographs taken before 2007, to construct a new feature titled Who do you know? The pictures could be of an event at school, public gathering or your family and friends.
Sending us photographs
If you would like to send us a photograph for this feature please include a couple of lines detailing where and when it was taken. If you would like us to contact you, please also include your name and email address or phone number. Entries can be sent via Twitter, Facebook and our website via the buttons below or our Submit/Contact page or alternatively you can bring a copy to the Hull History Centre and mark it for the attention of the African Stories Project. Photographs will be showcased online and on one of our exhibition boards.
Because we take confidentiality very seriously, we will not be naming individuals, this feature will merely be used to illustrate African presence in different settings around the region.
