The Black Orpheus Archives:

Recently, one of our Heritage Crew members, Ginalda Manuel, alongside a volunteer of the Chapeltown Community, DJ, artist, and poet, Cara-Mia, were involved in a project in partnership with the University of Leeds and Heritage Corner. This project, organised by the University of Leeds, delves into the previously hidden Black Orpheus archives, poetry written during the Nigerian-Biafran Civil War. This is Ginalda's response:


What people are saying...

  • Really worthwhile and full of information. Love the use of performance to portray characters and bring history to life.
  • A brilliant walk which shares (African) history in a well-researched, knowledgeable way. We need more of this input in our schools.
  • This is the second time I've attended the walk and feel there is so much more to learn. Joe’s knowledge, creativity and enthusiasm mean I could easily stay for the whole day.
