Black Britannia
Black Britannia, an Inspiration for the next generation. The aim of this exhibition is celebrate the contributions and achievements to UK culture and public life that black people have made over the last few decades. The 55 people in this exhibition have all succeeded in their chosen professions because of their of ambition and unflinching determination to reach their full potential. Their success should act as an inspiration for all young people. Their perseverance in dealing with the challenges, the stereotypes and the obstacles that have hindered young people, black or white should act as an example to young people every where. Went I first entered the media world that was ‘fleet Street’ back in the 1980s, I arrived wide-eyed and excited, my dream was to see my pictures printed in some of the nations well known newspapers & magazines. I still enjoy the buzz and elation each time my work is published today. But this didn’t happen over night, like my fellow black contemporaries I had to deal with the prejudices and the disappointments. I came to a decision that I would never allow the prejudices of that period to deter my efforts and distract me from my goal of becoming a photographer.
