The Colour of Love

22 Feb, 2019 at 12:00 am - 24 Mar, 2019 at 12:00 am

The Colour of Love focuses on capturing and archiving the experiences of Black African-Caribbean and White British people who were in mixed race relationships in Nottinghamshire during the 1940s – 1970s.

Through working with volunteers from the community, the project has spoken to over one hundred Nottinghamshire residents who have helped to shape the research. This exhibition presents a small selection of family photographs put forward by contributors. The project uncovers stories of lives lived as part of a mixed race couple, with all of the challenges, prejudices but also joy that brought.

Presented in partnership with The Colour of Love.

The Colour of Love Project is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
