Exhibition and play on John Archer, the first Black Mayor in London – this Friday at Battersea Arts Centre

We’ve previously written in some detail about the impressive life story of John Archer – Mayor of Battersea back in 1013, Britain’s first Black mayor, and someone with an interesting and unusual life story. And this Friday sees the opening of Black History Month at the Battersea Arts Centre, where he was Mayor – which will be marked with an exhibition, a short play and Q&A on The Story of John Archer. Tickets, at £6, are available here.

If you can’t make it, Sean Creighton‘s well-worth-watching illustrated talk on John (which is from last year’s Black History Month) is still available on Youtube below, or at this link.
