Description

ONE Picture My Story is an oral history and pictorial project by Southwark Archives who have collected the stories, reminiscences, thoughts and pictures from Southwark’s Black heritage communities.

This exhibition is taking place at both John Harvard Library and Dulwich Library.

The initial idea was simple: bring along your favourite photograph of Southwark to a reminiscence group and tell us the story behind it, why it was important to the participant and anything else they wanted to share about their life. We wanted these personal accounts to expand on the story of the borough of Southwark and its diverse communities.

ONE Picture My Story is part of the Southwark Today exhibition showing until 2023 at Southwark Heritage Centre and Walworth Library. An accompanying booklet containing photographs and descriptions for each of the contributors is available to view at Southwark Archives and selected Southwark Council libraries.
