Black Classicists Exhibition at the Iris Classics Centre in April

An exhibition celebrating the important role of African Americans in the field of Classics will be on display at the Iris Classics Centre at Cheney in April. You can find out more about the exhibition here.

The exhibition website explains: The African American men and women featured in this installation taught Greek and Latin at the college or university level and made groundbreaking achievements in education. Their academic accomplishments bolstered a new tradition of black intellectualism and resulted in greater opportunities for future generations of African Americans.

We will be arranging for students to come and visit during the school day. It will be available for anyone from the wider community to book to view outside school hours – please email lorna@irisproject.org.uk

It will also be available to view at our Graphic Novel Launch Event on 1st April from 3.45 – 5.30pm (see here for further information).
