The Colour of Love
Heritage Fund supported 'The Colour of Love' captures the history of Black African-Caribbean and White British people in relationships in Nottinghamshire during the 1940s – 1970s. This previously unexplored history uncovers stories of lives lived in the not-so-distant past, with all the challenges against the backdrop of British society prone to view mixed-race relationships with muted tolerance at best and open racism at worst.
The project celebrates the strength and resilience of these trailblazers, and above all the love they shared; creating an invaluable archive for future generations.
