100 Black Women Who Have Made A Mark seeks to redress the erasure of Black women from portraiture in the UK.  Led by Serendipity Institute for Black Arts and Heritage, the project will centre around an exhibition featuring the portraits of 100 Black women with connections to Britain and Ireland, curated by Pawlet Brookes with artwork by visual artists: Valerie Asiimwe Amani, Yvadney Davis, Gayle Ebose, Grace Lee and Lauryn Pinard.  The cover image, by Patricia Vester, encompasses the spirit of the project and everyone who has been a part of the journey.

100 Black Women Who Have Made A Mark seeks to make the hidden histories of Black women visible and to celebrate Black women, past and present and their contribution to life in Britain and Ireland.  100 Black Women Who Have Made A Mark offer a reflection of women across a range of professions and occupations who are deserving of recognition, whether they are a familiar face on stage or screen, a pioneer in research breakthroughs, or have worked quietly behind the scenes to make a positive change to their community.
