Developed by Friends of the Huntley Archives at LMA, with the generous support of the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), No Colour Bar has flourished to become an important milestone in Black British cultural heritage and the arts calendar through the support and close creative collaboration of partners Guildhall Art Gallery and the London Metropolitan Archives, provided by the City of London Corporation.

"Two years before she published Greenlee, Busby had become not only Britain’s youngest publisher, but also its first black female one (John la Rose, who established New Beacon Books in 1966, was Britain’s first black publisher; they were quickly followed, in 1969, by Jessica Huntley, of Bogle-L’Ouverture)." - Aida Edemariam

Please take a moment to enjoy this incredibly insightful interview with the revolutionary Margaret Busby - one of Jessica's oldest and dearest friends, Patron of FHALMA and co-editor of our No Colour Bar Exhibition book.

Margaret was instrumental in the development of both Bogle-L'Ouverture Publications and the Huntley Archives and has made a lasting impact on the publishing world. ❤️
