#ForgottenFigures is Black SuperSheroes second major exhibition for Black History Month celebrating historical Black women in Britain from 1300 – Present. This art exhibition is the first of its kind that will focus solely on Black women who are often overlooked in the national curriculum in schools. Our purpose is to make Black History studies more decorated, contemporary and engaging for KS2/3 in education.
Celebrated women will feature the Navy’s first black female sailor ‘William Brown’ to current sheroes such as boxer Nicola Adams (though she isn’t forgotten) where they will be transformed into supershero characters because they were game changers and broke down barriers.
Though this exhibition is primarily focused for schools, families, and individuals are very welcome to come along.
During the October half term, Black SuperSheroes will be teaming up with organisations in London to run FREE creative workshops for girls (7-12yrs) that will help complement the exhibition. Workshops will include:
Fight Like Nicola – One Day Boxing Workshop for girls only – PEDRO BOXING YOUTH CLUB
Forgotten Figures – A family event to watch the Hollywood blockbuster on the big screen – RIO CINEMA
Emma Clarke Clarke Clarke! – One Day Football workshop for girls only
