In the radical tradition of Bogle-L’Ouverture and New Beacon Books, avant-garde Black publishing takes centre stage at the 12th Huntley Annual conference. Hosted at London Metropolitan Archives on Saturday 4 March, the Friends of the Huntley Archives at LMA invites an intergenerational audience of participants and contributors to: take a bold look at the place of “Blackness” then and now; share new ideas on contemporary and progressive Black publishing interventions and accessible social media tools; and co-curate sessions to re-image critical themes around publishing methodologies, through an exploration of the prism of ‘the Archive Document’. A creative youth-focused programme runs in parallel to the conference to explore Blackness and Identity.
