PORTRAIT OF BLACK BRITAIN
Portrait of Black Britain, created and conceived by Cephas Williams, Co-Commissioned and launched at Manchester International Festival 2021. This major public exhibition at Manchester Arndale photographs and profiles a range of Black people living in the UK today, the contributions they make and the roles they play in society.
Portrait of Black Britain centralises Black-led representation on what it means to be Black in the UK right now. It is a reminder of the beauty in identity and diversity, the fact that the Black community is not a monolith. It is a moment to give the spotlight to the community to which this conversation belongs. And it is a powerful and positive affirmation that Black Lives Matter: not just in news stories about trauma or tragedy nor during Black History Month – but every day.
