Unlocking The Kenlock Archive

Neil Kenlock’s photographs raised £5,550 for the African Caribbean Leukaemia Trust.

Neil Kenlock, veteran photographer of the 1970s, and former a Shareholder/Director of Choice FM donated three black and white of his famous photographs to the ACLT. Photographs of Muhammad Ali, Bob Marley and the Mighty Sparrow were auctioned at the ACLT Gift of Life IV Fundraising Ball held on Saturday 7th June 2003 and reached a combined total of £5,550 on the night.

The ACLT aims to raise awareness about Leukaemia and more importantly increase the number of African, Caribbean and mixed race people on the UK Bone Marrow Register.  So far they have succeeded in raising the numbers    from 550 to approx 14,000. 

Additionally the ACLT’s aim is to expand their tremendous work into Africa and the Caribbean.

The Neil Kenlock Archives is centred on 30,000 images. Many images taken, have acquired a heightened historical significance, which reads like a ‘Who Was Who’ of Black British society, culture, politics and arts. Many featured are no longer with us, and in some instances these are the only recorded evidence of unique events or epic moments.  The images feature the self-determination of a Black community in Britain and the historical nature of our struggle and culture.
