From May 2007 to March 2008 Vanessa Walters worked as writer in residence for the Between the Lines project at the Kensington Central Library. Vanessa searched our archives for records of the presence of African and Caribbean individuals and communities in the borough, tracing and re-creating their stories, and bringing them to life.
