Project presentation_
Black Archive Alliance Volume II
A Villa Romana project in collaboration with Black History Month Florence
Friday 6 December 6-7pm

Le Murate Art District

We are pleased to invite you to the public presentation of a small series of research projects conducted in several archives located in the Florentine territory. This research offers us insights into the history that links Florence to the African continent and to Afro-Descendant people and cultures. The presentation of the second volume of the Black Archive Alliance will be an opportunity for the public to learn about the project in a phase of development, anticipating the catalog that will be presented in February 2020 within the Black History Month Florence program.
History
Started in 2018 Black Archive Alliance is a research and training project that aims to highlight a selection of documents that reflect the realities and histories of African populations, their diaspora and their representation across in a series of archives and public and private collections. The first edition created a virtual map of this archival presence in the city with a catalog that aims to support future research by providing perspectives that foster reflection.

Second edition
The second edition of the project was carried out with a tutoring format with teachers and scholars in tandem with students guiding their research within the network of Florentine archives established with the first edition as well as a few new sites to the project. The "mentors" followed a small group of students in the development of short research projects and writing with the final outcome consisting in in the realization of a text which will be published in the second edition of the catalog in 2020.

Black History Month Florence nasce nel 2016 come rete inter-istituzionale per promuovere la produzione culturale “Black” che celebra la diversità delle culture afro-discendenti nel contesto italiano. L’iniziativa programma, coordina e co-promuove annualmente più di cinquanta eventi nel mese di febbraio attraverso una rete formata e supportata dal Comune, fondazioni, istituzioni e associazioni culturali, musei e locali dedicati all’arte e alla musica e scuole.
Black History Month Florence si articola in BHMF Film, BHMF Arte, BHMF Laboratori, BHMF Conferenze, BHMF Cucina, BHMF Tour, BHMF Bambini e BHMF Teatro/Danza formando una comunità che s’impegna ad ampliare la visione, troppo spesso piatta, delle culture africane e afro-discendenti e a diffondere una programmazione culturale sfaccettata.
Questa iniziativa, sotto forma di un’unica piattaforma, è una raccolta di voci pensata per facilitare la ricerca e il dialogo inter-culturale.

Black History Month Florence was founded in 2016 as a cross institutional network for black cultural production that celebrates the diversity of Afro-descendent Cultures in the context of Italy. The initiative is engaged in programming, advising and co-promoting over 50 events annually within the month of February, through a network formed and supported by the Comune, foundations, institutions, cultural associations, museums, schools and venues dedicated to art and to music.
Black History Month Florence is broken down into BHMF Film, BHMF Art, BHMF Workshop, BHMF Talk, BHMF Food, BHMF Tours, BHMF Kids and BHMF Theatre/Dance forming a community dedicated to challenging flattened narratives about African and African Diasporic cultures and disseminating culturally diverse programming. Presented in a singular platform, the initiative is a rallying of voices designed to facilitate cross-cultural research and dialogue.
