Welcome to SFX Moodle

Tour and workshop: the Black Cultural Archives - Wednesday, 22nd October

 
The Black Cultural Archives has opened its new permanent home in the heart of Brixton after a £7 million redevelopment.
 
The heritage site is dedicated to collecting, preserving and celebrating the histories of people of African and Caribbean descent in Britain.
 
SFX has arranged a tour of the exhibition Re-imagine: Black Women in Britain, which delves into the remarkable history of Black women in this country and spotlights some of their inspirational lives and contributions to British society since the Roman era. Listen to a tapestry of voices and re-imagine the historical accounts of an 18th century freedom fighter, social and political activists, talented musicians, writers and a woman serving in the Royal Navy. 
 
We will also have an expert-led workshop accessing some of the primary documents in the archive.
 
Places are strictly limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis - please email a.stone@sfx.ac.uk if you would like to attend.
 
We will meet for the trip in the SFX reception at 1.00 pm on Wednesday, 22nd October and travel together by tube.
 
The college is paying for the cost of the workshop but please ensure that you have sufficient money on your Oyster card to travel. The session will finish at 3.00 pm, at which point you will be dismissed from the venue (1 Windrush Square, Brixton, SW2 1EF).

The LRC's 5 Book Challenge

 
The 5 Book Challenge is your opportunity to win a Kindle Fire tablet, just by reading five books (or more!) over the course of this year. Pick up a reading diary from the LRC front counter and, each time you read a book, write down the details along with a short review (two or three lines) and bring your diary to the LRC to be stamped. Once you have read five books, return the diary to the LRC to enter the draw. You can enter as many times as you like.
 
Anyone who enters will be eligible to win the Kindle Fire. We'll also be awarding additional prizes to those who submit the highest number of completed reading diaries, so get reading! All books are fair game - you can read novels, non-fiction, poetry, graphic novels, biographies or short stories. The most important thing is that you enjoy the experience!
 
If you'd like some help choosing a book or if you have any questions about the competition, please speak to Danielle in the LRC.
