Responses to the International Slavery Museum collections

To mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination of civil rights hero Martin Luther King Jr, we are hosting this two week public display in the Dr Martin Luther King Jr building, at the entrance to the Albert Dock.

The display of graphic design and illustration has been created by students and staff at Liverpool John Moores University in response to International Slavery Museum’s civil rights and legacies of slavery collections.

The displayed work presents a range of responses to our museum collections exploring themes such as human rights, activism and social justice with the aim to highlight historic freedom fights and human rights leaders, consider connections with contemporary contexts and the continuing fight for freedom and equality.

Expect a wide range of topics and themes to be covered in this exciting temporary display, developed in partnership with Liverpool School of Art and Design.
