Sleeping Giant
If you know your history, you know where you're coming from…

Kwaku always knew his history as an African who came here from Ghana at age six, but it has been a long process to really understand his identity as an African living in Britain.

In his work engaging Refugee and Asylum seekers with the museum service of Leicester he's helping newcomers understand their history as well as discovering more about the ancient roots of Leicester.
