About UsThe past decades has seen a dramatic growth in the field of black collectables and memorabilia, once these objects were hidden away like guilty secrets now they are critiqued, cherished and coveted by enthusiasts throughout the UK and abroad.
Although some of the objects can be found to be offensive, we have pulled our resources together in order to offer some of the most unique pieces for our store which we have here for sale for several reasons.
1. They serve as evidence of the African /Caribbean presence in the UK stretching back to Julius Caeser’s Romans occupation of 55 B.C.
2. They demonstrate these images have not arisen in a vacuum and how such objects have contributed towards the development and reinforcement of attitudes, perceptions, stereotypes, beliefs and prejudice towards people of African descent.
3. Certain rare collectables play a valuable role in highlighting and celebrating the historical contributions and achievements over the centuries of Black British men and women living and working in the UK.
