About

Stories from our Sisters in Sunderland

We will explore stories of Black and Minority Ethnic women who have made Sunderland their home.

The project will capture how these women have been shaped by Sunderland and how they have shaped the city through their cultural traditions. Through exciting creative and heritage activities participants will explore Sunderland’s history. Personal and previously unrecorded stories will also be collected for future generations.

This project is led by Sangini, a minority led women’s charity based in Sunderland.
