Displaying Black British History: the Krios of Sierra Leone
How might museum exhibitions convey the complex dynamics of black British history? In this episode of the History Workshop Podcast, co-curators Melissa Bennett (Museum of London) and Iyamide Thomas (Historical Researcher for The Krios Dot Com) discuss their work on "The Krios of Sierra Leone," a new display at the Museum of London Docklands that tells the story of Sierra Leone’s Krio people. In the process they have a broader conversation about Black British history in museums and community-engaged museum practice. Subscribe and listen now on SoundCloud, Apple Podcasts, and Stitcher.
