    Historic England is calling on individuals, families and communities in Leeds to help tell the story of the city’s Black and Asian heritage over the last 100 years.

    As part of a new nationwide campaign, Another England, people are being asked to share the places and buildings in Leeds that are important to them by ‘pinning’ them on an interactive map of the city with accompanying photographs at the Another England website.

    On Saturday 27 January Historic England is hosting a free drop in event in Brodrick Hall at Leeds City Museum for people interested in finding out more about the project.

    The campaign says it aims to draw attention to the role that Black and Asian people have played in the creation of today's multicultural society while recognising the challenges they have faced and continue to face.
