The story of the extraordinary lives of Eric and Jessica Huntley, two black publishing pioneers and activists whose legacy will continue to challenge and inspire everyone who cares about equality and justice is told in a series of resources which are provided freely on this website.
The resource was developed with educators in mind, parents, teachers, groups and anyone who wish to find out more about the Huntley’s and be inspired to make a difference. Each resource is supported by the others but can also be used as a stand alone, in its entirety or in part. We cannot hope to cover everything on this site but much more information can be obtained from the Huntley Archives held at London Metropolitan Archives.
London Metropolitan Archives (LMA)
Jessica Huntley was an avid retainer, and as a result the Huntley Archives contains a wealth of material that can be used as learning resources to shine a light on the Huntley’s and their activities. The resources available on this site is just a taster of what can be found in the Huntley Archives held at the LMA.
The Huntley Archive, housed at the London Metropolitan Archives, is a rich and powerful collection of materials covering fifty years of Black history in London and providing an unparalleled view of the African-Caribbean community in London. The Huntley Collection is the first major deposit from the African-Caribbean community in London to an established archive.
