‘Being Black is…Not Just Being One Colour’

Two of the winners of the ‘Being Black is…’ Black Health Agency t-shirt design competition have now been put on display in the Living Cultures gallery. The hope is that they will be rotated every month until we’ve managed to accomodate each of the fantastic winning designs!

They add an  extra dimension to the gallery, reminding us of our uniqueness and illustrating the diversity within the Black community in Manchester. Thankyou to the winners and the Black Health Agency for loaning these inspiring t-shirts to the Manchester Museum.
