The Islington Heritage installation of collaged images for Black History Month was created in support of Black Lives Matter and to celebrate the black community in Islington. The images have been collected from the archives of the Islington Local History Centre, Islington Council and the amazing contributions from the people of Islington. The display showcases Islington’s solidarity with the Black Lives Matter campaign and feature residents, staff, students and organisations in the Borough of Islington. The people on this wall are our neighbours, friends and role models. They are our community.
The installation is currently on display at the Islington Local History Centre at 245 St John Street, and is visible through the glass wall from the Finsbury Library.
Due to the current situation regarding social distancing we are encouraging interested people not to visit the Centre and instead to take a look at our online gallery of the images included in the display here.
If you would like to view the installation please contact the Centre by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are still accepting contributions to the display and will continue to add to the online gallery throughout October. Want to get your photo in the gallery and on the wall? Have photos you’d like to add to the display? Find out how here.
