Neil Kenlock – Lost Legacies Of The British Black Panthers
19th July – 30th August 2019
Please join us for this timely and important exhibition of the prolific, Jamaican-born Windrush photographer Neil Kenlock. Hosted over two Brixton locations, Photofusion and 198 Contemporary Arts and Learning, Lost Legacies of the British Black Panthers showcases photographs that evidence the struggles of the Windrush Generation as told through the photography of Neil Kenlock.
A show about community activism in Brixton during the 1970s and ‘80s, as well as leadership in a time of adversity, the dual site exhibition tells a story and history through portraits and civil protest photography. Photofusion displays portraits of the civil rights leaders, lawyers, activists and community icons of the time, while 198 hosts images of defining moments in the history of the civil rights struggle. Each site, at its core, represents the hopes and hardships of a generation.
In direct honour of the British Black Panthers, exhibition visitors can ride, walk, rail or bus down the former frontline of Railton Road to observe the collection in its two parts.
