Description

Photograph by Dennis Morris entitled 'Graffiti', showing a poem written on a wall inside The Black House.

“The Black House was set up in the Holloway Road in 1969 by Michael X (England’s answer to Malcolm X) with money donated by John Lennon and Yoko Ono (said to be in the region of £1 million). It was the first of its kind to exist in England. It had a library with books and artifacts on Black history and accommodation and recreational rooms. It was a refuge for Black youth and a place where they could meet to defuse their anger from a society which had no idea how to fit them into the system.” - Dennis Morris
