Britain's Black History

In 2010, Manifesta and the Museum of London led a project called 'Breaking into the Museum', that involved 14 young people from London to create short films on heritage and curating which would be inspired by objects from inside the Museum new exhibits. The film making training and production support was given by London based film makers, these are some of the films that BlackNine Films, Director Nuakai Aru and others helped to facilitate with some of the young people

This film was created by Chris Lamontagne in regards to race and class. His idea and lyrics were inspired by the Charles Booth's class classifications chart of Victorian London.

The film Black to Yellow received 2 United Nations Alliance of Civilization Plural+ Awards (Roots & Routes Award and Scalabrini International Network Award).
