In celebration of Black History Month 2022, Artefact attended a music event in one of London’s most vibrant neighbourhoods that boasts a predominately black Afro-Caribbean community.
Mapping Brixton Through Song, hosted by Australian Aboriginal artist Jessie Lloyd and located in the Brixton Tate Library, consisted of performances of both original songs and those by famous black musicians.
Activist and local performer Meverlee Meyers also performed her new original song titled Brixton Market which payed homage to the Windrush generation and their assimilation into London.
During the event, Jessie conducted a Q&A session around centring black history, uncovering the connection to music and black heritage.
