Celebrating black beauty in 1960s London

London's Afro-Caribbean community set up beauty pageants of their own during the 1960s at a time when mainstream notions of beauty largely shunned dark skin and afro hairstyles.

Renée Mussai is curator of a new exhibition in London, featuring photographs by the mastermind behind the pageant, Raphael Albert.

Renée Mussai spoke to Dan Damon.
