Determined Exhibition Inspiration Wall

The exhibition, Determined: The 400-Year Struggle for Black Equality, highlights the inspirational stories of 30 individuals, but there have been many more throughout history who have fought to make our society more equal and just. We have an interactive Inspiration Wall where the community can add stories of other heroes and inspiring figures to the exhibition.
