An informal discussion on how we access information about and by historic writers of colour in our nations’ archives.

People of Letters is the first gallery in the Museum of Colour, a digital museum exploring and celebrating the achievements of creatives of colour in film, television and the arts. This specific project is looking at the people who have supported writers of colour and is inspired by the relationship between Ignatius Sancho and Laurence Sterne.
