1945 Pan African Congress

Many organisations and individuals throughout Manchester’s history have striven to challenge racism. The exhibtion has a programme, and delegate badges, kindly loaned by Working Class Movements Library, from the seminal 1945 Pan African Congress held in Manchester. This particular Congress spearheaded the decolonisation of Africa and was attended by some of the most influential leaders in African history, from Kwame Nkrumah to Jomo Kenyatta.

Do you know of any other ways in which racism has been challenged in Manchester?
