Manchester Museum & Black Health Agency

During the summer of 2007 the Black Health Agency organised a number of debates with support from Manchester Museum curatorial staff, at both the Windrush and Zion centres respectively, about the legacies of the transatlantic slave trade and their effect on the Black community in Manchester today.

The product of these debates was a series of photographs taken across the city to highlight the continuing impact of these legacies, but more importantly how the Black community can, and has, succeeded in spite of such adversity.

These photographs, one at a time, will be displayed throughout the next several months in the Myths About Race exhibtion for visitors to view and share their comments. The first of the photographs is now on display.
