Black History Month 2019 - WoW - Liverpool

Wednesday 30th October

Back In The Day Vol. 1, with Leroy Cooper
Venue: Bluecoat, 8 School Ln, Liverpool L1 3BX
Time: 6.30pm 
Tickets: £6/£3


Back In The Day Vol. 1 is a rare and captivating selection from acclaimed photographer Leroy Cooper’s 200,000 photographs of the Liverpool 8 community taken between 1981 and 2018. Following his arrest in Liverpool 8 in 1981 Leroy’s name has been inextricably linked with the Toxteth riots, an ironic infamy considering he wasn’t there. Making a conscious decision to channel this negative experience into something positive through his street art, poetry, photography, painting and music, Leroy’s personal experience has become his legacy. In this unique event Leroy talks us through this fascinating and poignant collection.
