Val Wilmer in conversation at photography exhibition Black Chronicles II

Black Chronicles II: The Missing Chapter is an exhibition of archive photography from the late 19th and early 20th century which includes some of the earliest images of black people in the UK. As part of the exhibition writer, photographer and longtime Wire contributor, Val Wilmer will be in conversation with publisher Margaret Busby, founder of radical black publisher Allison & Busby, about her own collection of archive images of black people from the Victorian and Edwardian eras, many of which are included in the exhibition.

The talk takes place 4 November, 6:30pm at Autograph ABP at Rivington Place, as part of Black Chronicles II, which runs 12 September–29 November, curated by Renée Mussai and Mark Sealy. More details here.
