Journey to Justice

Until 7 April 2019

Powerful and moving personal stories reveal the circumstances that lead ‘ordinary’ people to take action for social justice in this interactive exhibition which features music, audio and photography.

Journey to Justice shows how the US civil rights movement helped to move people in the UK and the rest of the world to fight for their rights and make significant social and political change. It tells the extraordinary and moving stories of some of the less well-known women, men and children involved in US and UK struggles for freedom.

The exhibition shows how social justice can be led by ‘people like us’ and includes interviews, artwork and zines (DIY publications via which activists can make their own news) produced by local people.
