Living in Barking; The Story of Dr Bala Prasad

Dr. Bala Prasa was born in India, where he trained at medical college graduating in the early years of WWI. He welcomed the founding of the NHS, was a socialist and a supporter of Indian independence. 


The project worked with the Barking and Dagenham BAME forum and Valence House Museum to document the hidden history of Dr Prasad and the local BAME community living in Barking and Dagenham today.
