The exhibition Our Histories Revealed, which will open in May, 2018, is part of the wider project Africans in Hull and East Yorkshire, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
The project looks to uncover the history of people of African descent in this region from 1750 to 2007. An exhibition was staged at the Hull History Centre in 2017 and a substantial archive created – which can be viewed at the website africansinyorkshireproject.com.
Gifty Burrows, project co-ordinator for Africans in Hull and East Yorkshire, said;
“The project co-ordinators are keen to increase the ‘family history bank’ and would be delighted to hear from people if they have a family history or photograph, or know of anyone of African heritage who is interested in sharing their story. Your story might feature in our exhibition at the Treasure House!”
