Eunice McGhie-Belgrave from Stetchford

Having arrived in Birmingham from Jamaica in 1957, Eunice McGhie-Belgrave has worked tirelessly in her local community ever since. She has run a diverse range of community projects including ‘Shades of Black’ which was set up after the 1989 Handsworth riots to help build pride amongst young people in their communities.

Several of these projects are now housed within the archives at Central Library, and she hopes that the new exhibition spaces will inspire more Brummies to celebrate their city.
