Food is central to what it means to be part of a diasporic community – one that demonstrates the connections Londoner's have with the rest of the world. For many years, entrepreneurial food businesses have thrived across South East London feeding and providing produce from home to African and Caribbean communities.

This exhibition, Feeding Black spotlight fours of these businesses, and their owners, to explore how they are much more than the services and goods they provide to their communities, but act as vital spaces to untangle questions around politics, culture and heritage in an ever-changing city.

Feeding Black presents these stories through objects, recipes and videos along with newly commissioned photography by Jonas Martinez and original oral histories and soundscapes by Kayode 'Kayodeine' Gomez, - all of which will be collected and considered for acquisition by the museum for its permanent London collection.
