The Reverend Canon Dr Rosemarie Mallett and Reverend Kit Gunasekera of St John’s Angell Town, Brixton and St James, Clapham, are hosting Jim Grover’s photographs and accompanying narrative in their respective churches during October and November, to coincide with Black History Month.

This extraordinary exhibition portrays the current lives and traditions of the first generation of Caribbean migrants, who settled in Brixton and Clapham.

‘…poignant and intimate…moving and often beautiful…’ The Observer
