Opens 14th February and showing throughout Womens History Month in Karamel

Amidst the dealings of Brexit, the Windrush scandal and the forgetting of the Grenfell victims, the sense of what it means to be a Londoner and the feeling of “belonging” can be seen as quite a sensitive topic now more than ever. This is especially the case for young women of colour in London. With statistics reflecting the lack of opportunity and invisibility young BAME women face daily, this exhibition is the final showcase of They Came Before Us: A History of Women of Colour in the UK (TCBU) project.
Visit for the story behind the exhibition.
