Due to Covid restrictions Glen's Café is currently closed to the public, so we are projecting the images onto the windows. You will be able to view them from Grosvenor Road Park from dusk till midnight every evening.


The set of portraits in this exhibition make visible a generation of intrepid individuals, who left their homeland to make the journey to a new life. These elders paved the way for the generations of black British communities living in the UK today. Bristol-based artist and photographer Garfield McKenzie has documented these pioneers as a way to pay respect and show admiration.
