Black Heroes & Sheroes

This Black History Month we celebrate some of the black artists we work with, who have either experienced displacement and/or make work that speaks of the interconnected themes of migration and racial justice. We’ve invited the artists to tell their stories through their work, and tell stories of their own heroes and sheroes, of contributions and histories that are an integral part of the culture and history of this country.

Our Traces Project has two new profiles published to mark the Month. Mohammed Yahya is a Mozambican rapper who has performed internationally and has a socially engaged practice using music to build and inspire young people. Read Mohammed’s profile here.

Lucky Moyo, musician, dancer and storyteller has his own profile published on the Traces Project timeline, and he also performs a vibrant Facebook live set on Wednesday 28th October, at 7:30pm.

The final performance is by the brilliant British-Nigerian singer songwriter Bumi Thomas. At 6pm on Friday 30th October Bumi will present a set of her own songs and those of her heroes, recorded in the iconic London Oval Theatre. Head over to our Instagram for this very special performance. Performance filmed by Hossam Fazulla.
