2015 A new chapter and home for the NBAA librarySu Andi | September 4, 2015
The founder members of NBAA; National Black Arts Alliance (formerly BAA) came together to provide support, training, guidance and profile to Black artists as this provision was not met by the general arts community.
Since research and learning resources and any archive of Black arts and culture was virtually non-existent, BAA gathered a remarkable collection of such materials, building a library which was unique to the North West.
NBAA has donated this collection to the AIURRC in Manchester Central Library to ensure it is accessible and secure and as a dedication to Dinesh Allirajah (1967-2014) Chair of NBAA Trustees. Dinesh would have been pleased to see the collection being frequently used in its new home.
