James Berry archive acquired by the British Library
This month (Oct 2012), the BL has purchased the James Berry archive which includes poetry notebooks spanning the length of his career, along with manuscript and typescript drafts of his poetry and prose (including notes for an unpublished novel), diaries, photographs and audio visual material. James Berry was one of the first migrant Caribbean writers in Britain widely recognised for his work.
He came to Britain as part of the first major wave of migrants from the Caribbean in 1948 in the wake of the Nationality Act. Today, Berry is one of the major writers in Black British and Caribbean British literatures. (www.bl.uk, photo: © James Berry)
