UK Black History Month Exhibition

To celebrate UK Black History Month, two members of the Galop team, Nikki Nathan Lucas and Taranjit Chana have designed and produced this exhibition. It includes their choices of the people they believe should be celebrated for their contributions to Black history. They also recognise there are many, many more people that should be up there.

Black history month originated in the United States, where it is known as African-American history month. Today it is celebrated in the USA and Canada in February. Whilst in the UK. Ireland and the Netherlands it is October. It began as a way for remembering important people and events in history of the African diaspora. In the UK, Akyaaba Addai-Sebo was the architect of Black History Month in in 1987 and it’s been celebrated nationwide every year since.

Galop is the UK’s LGBT+ anti-violence charity. For over 35 years we have provided advice, support and advocacy to LGBT+ survivors and campaigned to end anti-LGBT+ abuse and discrimination. Working around three key areas - hate crime, domestic abuse and sexual violence - our mission is to make life safe, just and fair for LGBT+ people.

The Exhibition is displayed at Resource for London and open to visitors 7 days a week (8:30am-6pm).

Resource for London, 356 Holloway Road, N7 6PA.
