Black Cultural Archives Youth forum are joining up with Ubele to start an intergenerational dialogue to explore the all-important question: “have we finally found a place called home?

“Our purpose in life is to leave a legacy for our children and their children’s, children. For this reason we must correct history that at present denies our humanity and self- respect. We must restore our African personality, culture, Industry and Land’ – Queen Mother Moore

These words from Queen Mother Moore inspired our co-founder Len Garrison to collect an anthology of poems dedicated to exploring the experience, feelings, and contradictions of African-Caribbean people in “Babylon”.
