Fulston Manor’s black and mixed-ethnicity students have come together this term to mark Black History Month. Curating an exhibition celebrating their cultural identity and paying homage to the achievements of black individuals both past and present; the installation is a first for the school. The exhibition, now on display in the school’s main conference room, is open to all and features work from students across the age groups. Historic insights, artworks, video installations and fashion pieces have been brought together to encourage visitors to reflect on the importance of black culture in the UK and beyond. From pioneering artists to successful politicians, civil rights activists to cultural icons, the exhibition aims to detail the sometimes overlooked contributions black and mixed-ethnicity communities have made to world history and has offered our students a means of expressing their own identities in a constructive and imaginative way. Ayo Aderibigbe, Deputy Head Girl, said “We have really enjoyed putting this exhibition together. It shows everyone about our history and cultures and shows what an inclusive school we are”.
