WELCOME to the Black Histories Connections web site, a resource that offers the opportunity to explore Preston and the surrounding region of the north through its local black history, to enable us to consider the development of our relationships to global cultures and inspire future interest in local heritage and how histories are made.

The web site is in the form of a picture scroll or moveable panorama, a horizontal, illustrated narrative that offers a wide, encompassing view of the black experience in the region, beginning in ancient times and up until the present day.

Use your scroll bar along the bottom edge of the web page to move forward, begin here.
