BP Spotlight Display:
Stan Firm inna Inglan: Black Diaspora in London, 1960-70s
Tate Britain

This display brings together for the first time recently acquired works by eight photographers, gifted by Eric and Louise Franck. The photographs by Raphael Albert, Bandele ‘Tex’ Ajetunmobi, James Barnor, Colin Jones, Neil Kenlock, Dennis Morris, Syd Shelton and Al Vandenberg focus on those who travelled from the Caribbean and West Africa to live in London, documenting their joy, self-empowerment and desire to belong to British society, as well as the racial tension and exclusion that defined these communities in the capital. The title of the display is taken from the poem It Dread inna Inglan by UK-based Jamaican-British poet Linton Kwesi Johnson.
