The Leeds West Indian Carnival

This is a caption

Since the early 1970s I have taken an active part in the Leeds West Indian Carnival, which I regard as the most important cultural festival in Leeds.  I was commissioned by West Yorkshire Archive Service to write a short history of the Carnival, which is available from the archives, or may be downloaded here:

‘A Short History of the Leeds West Indian Carnival, between 1967 and 2000‘ (pdf)

My more academic analysis of Carnival [‘Carnival in Leeds and London, UK: Making New Black British Subjectivities’ by Geraldine Connor and Max Farrar.] may be downloaded from the Academic articles [culture and politics section of this web-site. It is also inserted here
