A new exhibition empowering people to take action for civil justice
Journey to Justice is a new exhibition exploring human rights movements and celebrating those people who have stood up to make a change.
As well as stories from the US civil rights movement, the exhibition will also feature a number of local and regional stories.
These include the story of a Nottingham lace manufacturer who fought for the abolition of slavery and pioneered advances in workers' rights plus Nottingham's involvement in gay rights activism in the 1960's.
The exhibition will also highlight campaigns to kick out discrimination in sport as well as highlighting issues of inequality that still exist today. The story of Viv Anderson will be highlighted. Anderson was the first black footballer to represent England in a full senior match and was also an integral part of Brian Clough's Nottingham Forest team that went on to win two European Cups.
In addition, the exhibition will explore struggles against poverty, acts of activism plus murals, art and poetry that have been used to express feelings of social injustice and as a call for change.
This exhibition area is free and can be accessed without paying the general admission cost
