Join us on Thursday 20 April at Nottingham Castle for a very unique launch event.
The Journey to Justice: Nottingham exhibition tells two distinct but interconnected stories. The first focuses on the US civil rights movement, its universal significance and its links to the UK. We tell stories of less well-known men, women and children who were involved and we explore factors essential for a human rights movement to succeed. In the second we tell stories of Nottingham's Journey to Justice, looking at the long and vibrant history of social activism and social justice in the city. We tell the stories of people like Viv Anderson, the first black footballer to play for England; John Clarkson, a gay man sent to jail in 1965 before homosexual acts were partially decriminalised; and Josiah Henson, a liberated slave from the US who came to visit Nottingham to tell his story towards liberation. Together, with other important local histories, Journey to Justice: Nottingham seeks to showcase, until now, lost histories of local people's struggle towards freedom and justice.
The exhibition is being held at the newly refurbished National Justice Museum (formerly known at the Galleries of Justice) in the centre of Nottingham from 1 April 2017 to June 16 2017. Entry is free.
