22nd June - 26th June
To mark Windrush Day, sound guides have curated site-specific sound tours of the British Library building. Explore individuals’ memories of the Caribbean and migration to the UK through the powerful voices and testimonies in the Library’s oral history collections.
These tours were curated as part of the Unlocking Our Sound Heritage project, which aims to preserve and provide access to the nation’s rare and unique sound recordings. The British Library is home to the nation’s Sound Archive, an extraordinary collection of over 6.5 million recordings. Tours are led by Shani Page Muir, Ayomide Oluyemi and Korantema Anyimadu.
