For Black History Month we’ve put together an exhibition of highlights from Black Women’s history in the Feminist Library’s collections that covers many campaigns, groups, and organisations. This rich collection of materials includes posters, badges, flyers, archives, periodicals spanning some five decades of the feminist movement’s history. The exhibition will run from October to November. Access will be limited to ensure that social distancing guidelines are fully met.

Virtual Exhibition

Alongside this on-site exhibition we have a virtual version of the project for those who are unable to visit the Library. Please browse through the selection of images below. Photographs by Panamá Díaz Fernández @panamadiaz
