  • Image of (Re)framing the Archive by Panya Banjoko

The poems in (Re)framing the Archive derive from Panya's personal engagement with museums over two decades and as the founder of Nottingham Black Archive. They are an attempt to give space to those voices that are otherwise submerged and highlight the disparity in underrepresentation of Black people as curators of their own history. They can be seen as an intentional social and political act of activism providing a space for political thought, discussion, and action.
