I really liked this collection of photographs because each decade gave me something to think about and tells a story. From hair, fashion, lifestyle and even simple things like how children were dressed back in the 50’s, it got me thinking about black culture. It was definitely good to see what Britain would have looked when my parents were young and my grandparents had just come to this country. There were a few photos of women with afros that reminded me of my mom who of course was (and still is) so fashion when she was a teenager. It sounds really basic but parts of this exhibition really made me smile because some of it is just so positive and fun.
I don’t want to give too much away because if you are planning to go and see it I don’t want to ruin it for you.
The Staying Power Exhibition is free and is on until Sunday 24th May so there is still time to get down there.
Let me know if you go
