About the event

Welcoming Cultures in collaboration with Cultural Fashion & Arts presents a special Black History Month film screening.

The Story Behind My Caribbean Cultural Style' docu-film is a wonderful exploration of Creole Caribbean clothing made with Madras fabrics. In the docu-film, British born Jennifer Laurent-Smart shares the story of her family's migration to the UK and provides insight into her Caribbean heritage and how she expresses it through fashion. Jennifer is also joined by additional interviewees of Creole Caribbean heritage across generations who share some of their touching and insightful personal stories and views on the connection between cultural fashion and their identity. Featuring archive content, the documentary also explores the origin of Creole Caribbean traditional Madras clothing, its links to India, Africa, slavery, and its use today.

After the screening, you are invited to take part in a Q&A session with docu-film star Jennifer Laurent Smart and the film's producer and director, Candy Ellie Graham.

This event will be hosted by Sheffield and District African Caribbean Community Association (SADACCA).
