An exhibition curated by Opal22 Arts and Edutainment in partnership with Leicester Museums and Galleries to highlight the Black Lives Matter Movement and the issues affecting Black People within Leicester and the UK.


The exhibition reflects the protests across the city and explores the facts around being Black in the UK and also includes an original sculpture by artist Merissa Hylton ‘BLM’. The piece explores the use of sign language as a method of communication, and highlights the limitations of UK sign language for people with physical disabilities such as the artist herself, who has Amniotic Band Syndrome which affects the fingers on her right hand.
