Year 10 visit to the British Library

Posted: 3rd July 2024

A group of Year 10 students were lucky enough to attend a workshop on Black British Literature at the British Library on Tuesday. We were hosted by Sandra Agard, a charismatic author and storyteller who has worked at the Library for 4 years. She gave us a talk on prolific Black British authors through history, pointing out important figures and stories along the timeline. We were then treated to a short tour of the Library, including the Treasures room and the outside of the King’s Library. After that, we visited the open exhibition on Black British music. We were able to see the development of Black music over time, as well as notable historical events which tied into the movement. We found the workshop engaging and enlightening, and would like to thank Sandra and the British Library for the experience. (by Tal M)
