Britain's first black arts and cultural centre. Founded by Oscar Abrams, it was named for a Caribbean singing bird. It had its own drama company, artists in residence and was a hub for African and Afro-Caribbean politics and arts. The photograph is of a children's event in September 1977. Bob Marley's 1978 'Is it love' video was shot here. A 7 year-old Naomi Campbell apparently puts in an appearance.
