Echoes of Legacy: Sculpture Honoring Black Icons Across Time

A sculpture representing 12 Black figures from the 17th century to the present day previews the "Entangled Pasts 1768-now: Art, Colonialism, and Change" exhibition. Crafted from bronze, black patina, and gold leaf, it's hailed as an archive of Black stories. Notable figures include Harriet Tubman, Marcus Garvey, and Mary Seacole. In the UK, Black History Month honors luminaries like Idris Elba, Michael Ward, Lashana Lynch, and Naomie Harris, who continue to shape culture and society.

Counter culture: stories from 75 years of Britain’s Caribbean food shops
“I’m a north Londoner of Vincentian heritage, so I remember being dragged down to food markets as a youngster and along to shops that weren’t necessarily owned by people in the community. A lot of these places, as I recall them, weren’t very appealing. There was no customer service to speak of, they weren’t enlightening environments – they were just people who had identified a niche and were driving it home. One of my friends, my junior partner in the business now and almost a mentor, had a dad who started out visiting people’s homes with a van and had been involved in the sector for 40-odd years.
The plan, ultimately, is to open more shops with the same theme and really drive this movement. Because, I think, building on the work of those pioneers who sold produce out of vans, we’re bringing something worthwhile. There’s nothing like seeing someone leave with a smile on their face and a full bag. As long as that continues, I’ll be happy.” - Darren Richards
