The exhibition tells two distinct but interconnected stories. One focuses on the US civil rights movement, its 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. The other tells stories of Leicester's Journeys to Justice, looking at the long and vibrant history of social activism and social justice in the diverse city of Leicester. JtoJ Leicester seeks to showcase the stories of local people's struggle towards freedom and justice.
The exhibition is being held at Attenborough Arts Centre from 11-27 October 2019, and Entry is free.
