For one day UK’s music pioneers and artists literally take-over the Black Cultural Archives to celebrate the final day of the Black Sound exhibition. Black Sound tells the story of 100 years of the greatest pioneers and pays homage to those who created the Black Sound legacy here in Britain.

EXHIBITION & NATIONAL CALL OUT
Presented by the godfather of UK hip hop Rodney P, the BCA wraps up the final day of the exhibition with a national call-out to encourage artists, producers, and promoters to archive their own musical legacies.
