As October and Black History Month http://www.blackhistorymonth.org.uk/ come to an end, we highlight the African-Caribbean, Asian & African Art in Britain Archive, part of the Special Collections at Chelsea College of Arts Library, and look back to the visits hosted during the last few weeks, co-organised with the Arts Students’ Union. The Special Collections at Chelsea College of Arts Library are used for teaching, learning, research and curating, and have a strong emphasis on modern and contemporary art. They include artists’ books and magazines, multiples, ephemera and archives.
