Saturday 30 November 2019 – Maas Roy purchasing a piece of art by Jon Judace at the Black History African Market event in Tottenham. They had a lovely chat as Jon was pleased to be able to meet an elder and said that elders are very important in helping younger people to understand their history, connect with their feelings, to be more communicative and to pass on values about their culture.

Maas Roy and Yvonne with Irene Sinclair wishing her a happy 111th birthday. Yvonne interviewed her for a programme called ‘5 Minute English’ when she was a mere of 102. Now this is what we call Black History amongst really old friends! – 23 September 2019.

22 June 2019 – Maas Roy spending Windrush Day with the artist Everton Wright at a special dinner to honour elders in Birmingham where he was asked to address the guests.
