The Black Archives
The Black Archives is a historical archive with a unique collection of books, documents, and artefacts documenting the histories and culture of Black Dutch emancipation movements, thinkers, and activists in the Netherlands and beyond. The stories rediscovered in the archive challenge normative historical narratives which tend to whitewash histories of colonialism, racism, imperialism and its legacies in present day societies. The stories uncovered in the archive also show histories of a Black radical tradition and stories of transnational solidarity. Histories which seemed isolated and disconnected are more interwoven than we may think.
