We’ve all got a cop inside our heads.  It’s up to you what you do about that. 

SUBIRA JOY at the junction


Spoken word and performance artist Subira Joy explores their experiences being targeted by the police as a Black, queer and trans person in the UK.

Combining striking visual imagery with powerful language, this new work examines the impact of the police in our communities and how we internalise their role to repress and suppress ourselves into submission.

Tracing narratives of police encounters while centring themes of violence, gaslighting and abuse of power, this work exposes how we impede our liberation when confronted by our inner cop.

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.

We hope you enjoy it!
