In line with national celebrations, our Black History Month temporary exhibition is now live!
The exhibition includes creative work from Manchester born artists Akinyemi Oludele and Ayo Ogolo, along with information from a nationally accepted body of work by activist Abby Prince – both Abby and Akinyemi have worked on Mustard Tree projects a number of times.
Abby sadly passed away last year and in part we celebrate her and her tireless fight for the establishment of Black History Month nationally, especially in schools in Salford and West Yorkshire. Salford Museum and Art gallery had a special Black History Month exhibition in 2002 dedicated to Abby, called Black Native Americans.
“We’re not so different, you and I.
We just live in different rooms
of the same house”
