FOTC highlights one of our members, Anthony Young, a Milton Keynes based photographer.

Anthony is currently creating a photographic project and exhibition centred on the African Caribbean Elders living in Milton Keynes.  These Elders took the brave decision to start a new life in the UK, during the 1950s, 1960s and early 1970s.

Their presence had a profound effect on what it means to be British and to be treated as human being.  With much of current world events being echoes of the past, there is a lot we can learn from those that participated in the project.  We can share with future generations and new arrivals on how to best welcome new people into our communities and build a positive experience for all.

With October being Black History Month, Anthony’s exhibition will take place on the 14th to 31st of October, at Church of Christ the Cornerstone in Milton Keynes.  Visitors can view his work on the ground floor and also visit, “Inspired by Africa” a themed textile prints exhibition on the second floor, by Jane Charles, Textile Artist.
