Alternative Arts embraces the bountiful programme of events for Black History Month this October, which this year focuses on Saluting Our Sisters and the #WEMATTER movement, by celebrating with a compelling exhibition of photographs by black British photographers. With interweaving narratives, these photographs are social celebrations of black history and identity by a group of exceptional contemporary photographers.

The exhibition includes portraits of Denzel the Goth Cowboy and empowering depictions of the black woman as mother, a tribute to the Iyebiye (precious) Nigerian cuisine, a history of The Triumphant African soldiers and scenes of Unknown Fishermen in Lagos. Both established and emerging photographers have been selected for this reflective exhibition at Brady Arts Centre in East London, curated by Sarah Ainslie and Maggie Pinhorn.

The exhibition will also be launched online from 6 October at:
