BLACK SOCIAL HISTORY : THE BLACK HISTORY MUSEUM - THIS IS GEORGE ELEADY-COLE PERSONAL BLACK ANTIQUES COLLECTION COLLECTED OVER FIFTY YEARS AS DEFECATED TO THE SUFFERING OF MY PEOPLE " THE BLACK RACE ON THIS PLANET " AS INFLICTED BY OTHER RACES UPON US :


This is a member of The Right Sites family.Their purpose and ethos may appeal to you if you like this site.
Our sponsor
We gratefully acknowledge funding from the Social Affairs Unit. The SAU took an interest because it promotes lively debate on “manners and morals in the new millennium”. It does not necessarily endorse any of the views on this site.
Who we are
The site is edited by Richard D North and we intend to post essays by a wide range of people. Most of our images come from George Eleady-Cole’s private collection. All the signed contributions to the site are personal: the contributors don’t all agree with each other. There is no party line.
What we want to achieve
The founders (RDN and GE-C) believe that the history of imaging the black person deserves sustained attention. There has been nervousness around this subject and we aim to dispel some of it. We hope you enjoy the material.
About George Eleady-Cole
There’s a “meet the collector” section with much more, including a video interview. But it’s worth noting that George wanted an online version of his collection partly because his material is not – repeat, not – housed in a way which is available to visits by the public.
