Medway African and Caribbean Association

brings Black History to Life with Heritage Lottery Fund support

Medway African and Caribbean Association ( MACA) received funding  from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for an exciting and innovative project called  "Black History Live"  The project focused on the history and legacy of African and Caribbean People across Kent and Medway during the 19th and 20th centuries.

We held a series of research workshops to learn more about the history and legacy of African and Caribbean people in the region. The project resulted in a number of outputs: A play called Black Heroes of Kent, a documentary, a resource website, and an exhibition. 

You can learn more at our other website www.blackhistorylive.org.uk
