Black History Studies in association with
PCS presents the DVD Launch of
'Rootical: An Audience with Charlie Phillips'
Sunday 29th April 2012
|This is the story of Charlie Phillips, the legendary photographer who documented the social implications of immigration in the 1950's and 1960's in Notting Hill. Charlie has experienced much ignorance with regards to the importance of his work. The working class seems to be excluded from the art world. In discussion with Benjamin Zephaniah and the curator of the museum of London, they get to the bottom of that issue.
