About us

Inspired by Pan-African civil rights leader Queen Mother Moore, our founders established Black Cultural Archives in 1981 with a mission to create Britain’s first museum dedicated to representing the culture on history of Black people in Britain. Today we are a national institution dedicated to collecting, preserving and marking the histories of Black people in Britain and their place in British history. Our collection of original archive materials constitutes a permanent record, and our ambition is to embed this presence into the broader British narrative and increase understanding of our diverse heritage.

This role is key to the ongoing resilience of BCA. We are seeking a Project Manager to run our National Lottery Heritage Fund project: ‘Securing the future of Black British History’.
