The exhibition focuses on the main social, cultural and political issues that had an impact on the Black community from first Black MPs to local cultural icons such as Laurel Aitken, Wolde Selassie and Louise Katerega. 

Lost Legends is an exhibition showcasing local connections and contributions to BHM, including an oral history archive, a publication 30 years 30 Voices and a film produced to accompany the exhibition.
