New 'Picture Blog' Post
This week we have released our new and exciting Picture Blog which looks to chart African presence in Hull and East Yorkshire through images and videos. On Tuesday, we invited you to get involved by looking through old newspapers and family photographs, to see if you could help us add to our collection of fabulous images. Don’t forget as well as famous people we are also looking for members of the public who demonstrate that people of African heritage have a long and far reaching history in this region. Yesterday, we released the first image in our Picture Blog entitled ‘Earliest photograph of a Black resident of Hull, c.1880.’ It was given to us by Dr Nicholas Evans from his own personal collection.
