The George Padmore Institute is an archive, educational resource and research centre housing materials relating to the black community of Caribbean, African and Asian descent in Britain and continental Europe.

Founded in 1991, we are based in North London where we often hold educational and cultural activities including talks and readings. We also publish relevant materials and are making our archives accessible to the general public.
