Bernie Grant was Member of Parliament for Tottenham (1987-2000) and tireless campaigner for social justice, as well as the leading figure in a number of organisations, including Labour Party Black Sections, the Black Trade Unionists’ Solidarity Movement and the African Reparations Movement. His archive includes papers, artefacts, recordings and other material documenting these organisations and the whole of his career, and is an invaluable resource for the study of late twentieth century British history.
