UNTOLD - THE ACLC LEGACY
HERMAN ROBINSON, AMBASSADOR FOR THE ACLC LEGACY CHAPTER
UNTOLD _ THE STORY OF THE ACLC LEGACY
The New Chieftains has been working closely with The ACLC (The African Caribbean Leadership Company) as they lead on a programme capturing the legacy of their co-founders. The title of this story is UNTOLD. Together with the ACLC we will be sharing inspiring stories of pioneering members of the Windrush Generation who in 1974, founded the organisation.
The ACLC was formed in 1975, originally under the name of the West Indian Leadership Council. It acquired charity status in 1986 and limited company status in 1990. The current name was then adopted to reflect the community it represents.
The ACLC members achievements include establishing the renowned West Indian Cultural Centre (WICC) in Turnpike Lane, Haringey; campaigning for civil rights locally and internationally; and influencing race legislation and education policy. Their rich personal journeys are equally fascinating from Caribbean childhoods to present-day London.
The New Chieftains celebrates and salutes the unwavering Tenacity shown to us by the members of this chapter. We thank you.
