Capturing Cambridge encourages people of all ages to
discover the fascinating and inspiring histories of our streets.
You can begin by browsing our projects or searching for a
specific place, or person, of
interest. We believe the best way though
is to explore our wonderful map. Go on, unlock a Cambridge
secret that you never knew!
Join Fehinti Balogun on a journey into the world of environmental activism, as he tells the story of how, as a young Black British man, his path has been forever changed by what he’s learnt about our planet.
Using original hip-hop and spoken word, Can I Live? is an energising and uplifting exploration of the place where the climate emergency and social justice meet, and a call-to-arms to anyone curious about what we can do to help.

BLACK HISTORY MONTH 2021
Black History Month is held every year in October. It’s promotes the history and contributions that Black people with origins in Africa, the Caribbean, North and South America and other Black communities around the world have made to Cambridge and the UK.
Events around the country include history and heritage, arts and culture, news and ideas from the communities. It is an opportunity to share activities and experiences.
Black History Month was first celebrated in the UK in 1987. We have celebrated it in Cambridge since 2005.
We are gathering and sharing talks and lectures, articles, plays, films, and interviews to create an archive and celebrate Cambridge Black Heritage.
