Beyond the Bassline: 500 Years of Black British Music exhibition 

The British Library has launched the Beyond the Bassline: 500 Years of Black British Music exhibition which opened on Friday 26 April and is running until 26 August 2024.

The exhibition shines a spotlight on different voices and perspectives to celebrate Black British music as a form of entertainment and vehicle for community, as well as a source of liberation, protest and education.

In conjunction with this exhibition, as a member of the Living Knowledge Network, Camden Libraries are displaying free-standing Beyond the Bassline panels in four libraries and are also planning music events at each of the four libraries.
