When: Closes 4th June

In 1978 Brixton a group of young people with varied skills had a mission to explore, witness, uphold and reproduce the very radical idea of their lives. Black Ink was a writing and artist collective who published what no one else would. With the support of the local community, eight young people provided a platform for young Black Britons to write and have their works published. See what they created at this impressive exhibition.
