The Trampery in Tottenham is hosting an exhibition in celebration of Black History Month for the local community. 

Throughout October, The Trampery is opening its doors for local residents to view its Black History Month exhibition, Local Reflections and Black on Both Sides.

The exhibition takes a look at the Haringey anti-apartheid movement and Nelson Madela’s visit to Haringey in 1962. It also explores the involvement of Black soldiers, sailors and porters during the First World War as well as the race riots of 1919 in London, Glasgow, Liverpool, Cardif, Salford, Hull, South Shields and Newport. 

The exhibition was curated by The Trampery members Ankh Doctor and Natasha Johnson, supported by Heritage Lottery Fund. 

Viewings will take place from Monday to Friday, between 10am and 4pm. To find out more call 07597 003 013 and ask Ankh Doctor for further details.
