Black History Month is here. Come and see the collage in support of Black Lives Matter at Islington Local History Centre.

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.
This installation 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.
