Black Lives Matter

Dates: 1 October - 31 December 2020 (Extended due to popular demand)
Venue: Installation and online exhibition presented by Islington Local History Centre 

October is Black History Month in the UK, an annual celebration of black history, and in 2020 Islington Council is running a full programme of events, find out more here.

As part of this larger programme of events Islington Heritage has created a wall installation in the Islington Local History Centre made up of collaged images in support of ‘Black Lives Matter’.

Events over the past few months have put a spotlight over racial inequality. The tragic death of George Floyd in America, one amongst many, resonated worldwide with demonstrations in support of Black Lives Matter.

The installation in the Islington Local History Centre and online exhibition explores how these events have affected Islington through acts of solidarity and support, as well as exhibiting images representing black history and the black community in Islington.
