On Monday, 28th May, I attended the Race Act 40 Exhibition event held at the Wellingborough African Caribbean Association, based in Rock Street.
Race Act 40 is an oral history project organised by Northamptonshire Rights & Equalities Council, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, exploring historic racism in Wellingborough.
The two-year project was supported by the excellent contributions of volunteers who were professionally trained to carry out over 40 interviews which will now be archived at the University of Northampton.
The event was formally opened by James Saunders Watson also known as the High Sheriff of Northamptonshire.
