I’m Harry Alimo - a multi-disciplinary arts activist who works with illustration, poetry, film, and now oral histories to change public opinion. I got involved with Birmingham 68 because I wanted to know more about my city and what had been lost from its past, so I could work towards bringing it back to educate the citizens of today. The project has opened my perspective as well as showing me just how much people are ignorant about in regards to Birmingham and its history. I’ve enjoyed being made aware of the resources that make it possible to look into the past of a place, and being able to explore these in depth. But making new friendships through the project has been even more enjoyable. Getting involved has definitely inspired me to continue my research!
