Black Music History Project Press release
pan-London voluntary organisation BTWSC has received funding
from Heritage Lottery to develop the Brent Black Music History
Project (BBMHP). BBMHP, which starts during the summer
holidays (from late July), will work in partnership with Brent
Archive, and six young people to produce an audio-visual
resource and a booklet capturing the history of black music in
Brent from 1966 to 2006.
young people will learn research and interview skills in order
to help interview artists and music moguls, and research
areas, buildings and organisations that have had a connection
with black music. They will work with BBMHP consultant Kwaku,
a music industry tutor, journalist and founder of the Black
Music Congress music. The outcome will be compiled into a
booklet and DVD, which will be available free to schools,
libraries, and community organisations.
young people will have the opportunity to meet with Brent
South MP Ms Dawn Butler with their findings before the formal
launch of the booklet and DVD in November.
is happy to hear from young people who would like to take part
in the project, or from anyone with information about
individuals, organisations or buildings that need to be
covered by the project by either emailing on firstname.lastname@example.org
