Re-imagine: Black Women in Britain’ Exhibition at Black Cultural Archives

Have you been to the ‘Re-imagine: Black Women in Britain’ exhibition at Black Cultural Archives yet?

I passed through Brixton after I got my locks washed and styled at Adornment and went to visit the ‘Re-imagine: Black Women in Britain’ exhibition at the newly opened Black Cultural Archives.

It is a nice free exhibition of the hidden contributions of Black Women to World History. I brought my two daughters with me and it was nice to see other young people with their parents and guardians too. I loved the audio guides which my daughter found very amusing.

At the exhibition I learnt that Seaman William Brown was a Black woman who disguised herself as a man to become the first Black women to serve in the Royal Navy as a Captain of the Fore-top. I also found a picture of Amanda Alridge that I’ve never seen before.

The exhibition is on until 30 November 2014.
