BLACK women’s role in shaping history is being celebrated at a Leamington church.
All Saint’s Church is marking Black History month with an exhibition entitled ‘Saluting our Sisters’ running until October 28.
The exhibition spotlights the role that black women from African and Caribbean communities have played in shaping history, inspiring change and building bridges across the globe.
Black women have been at the heart of social justice movements throughout history, courageously battling oppression and advocating for change. However, the momentous changes that they have made have frequently been either neglected or forgotten, or appropriated by others.
The exhibition aims, in a small way, to address that by acknowledging and celebrating their achievements in many areas of society – literature, fashion, sport, science, medicine, entrepreneurship, the church, politics and academia.
All the individuals featured are inspirational in their respective fields, and all share similar characteristics of perseverance, courage and defiance.
