After touring from Morley College, Milton Keynes Library, to the Harrow Arts Centre, our Samuel Coleridge-Taylor exhibition will now be on at Talawa Theatre this year. From the 30 May – 24 June 2023, you will be able to visit our exhibition on the almost forgotten, yet extraordinary life of one of Britain’s Black British Composers, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor (1875 -1912).

Very little is remembered about the life and extraordinary talent of Samuel Coleridge-Taylor both in the realms of his music and contributions to the fight for racial equality.

Born in Holborn in 1875 to an English mother and a father originally from Sierra Leone, Coleridge-Taylor worked with the starry likes of Edward Elgar and Charles Villiers Stanford, and once even met President Theodore Roosevelt at the White House.
