Black in Haringey
In 2016 we produced ‘Black in Haringey’ - a groundbreaking documentary about the history of black people in Haringey. The documentary features interviews with actress Judith Jacobs, David Lammy MP and the owners of Haringey businesses including Body Music, Blooming Scent Cafe and Uncle John’s Bakery.
