Street party, Rusholme (2012.06.04)

This street party was held under the banner of the Jubilee celebrations, but represents a much broader coming together of people within the local area.

Today, I attended a talk by Dennis Morris at Whitworth Art Gallery on his book Growing Up Black. He spoke of the importance of the culture of sound systems in creating a sense of community amongst Jamaican immigrants in the 1960s-70s.

These, and other community events based in churches and barbers shops, can be seen to be key to the creation of a cross-cultural youth community and the development of shared style around musical and social subcultures, as youths from other backgrounds were drawn in.
