Dr Caroline Bressey and Dr Gemma Romain (UCL Geography) are examining the role of Black and Asian individuals in the changing artistic, social, cultural and political scenes that emerged in inter-War London. The AHRC-funded project, Drawing over the Colour Line: Geographies of art and cosmopolitan politics in London 1919 – 1939, will result in a freely accessible database of details of the artworks created which represent Black people and those created by Black people based in Britain during this time.
With thanks to the UCL Art Museum and University of Bristol Theatre Collection for permission to use the images and to Jonathan Holmes for his transfers of the original 1926 London recordings of The Plantation Orchestra:
