Black in the Day presents a free scanning social at Eastside Projects, archiving the existence of black British people.
Go through your family photo albums, ask Gran for those throwback pics, let Dad show you his childhood memories, then bring your photos down to the Black in the Day Scanning Social!
Get your photos scanned by the team and added to the archive, while riddims play you through the afternoon.
