'Glasgow's African Tales'

Friends of the Wumenu Community Farm has received £ 56,700 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for an exciting new project, ‘Glasgow’s African Tales: An oral history of African traditions’. The two-year project, which runs until January 2019, will create a unique oral history archive containing around forty interviews with first and second generation African migrants. The project explores memories and stories of African cultural traditions and the ways in which migrants sometimes struggled to keep those traditions alive in a new land. Working with Chief Gift Amu – Logotse and Dr Sue Morrison, volunteers from across Glasgow’s ethnically diverse population will receive professional oral history training and be supported to digitally record interviews with Africans living here.
