The picture, of a street party for the L8 Mandela Freedom Festival in 1988, shows Vivian with her friend, Tito Cooper. She lived in Magdela Street at the time – where her mum, a well-known member of the community still lives, and fondly remembers the tight knit L8 community growing up. She is pictured here with her daughter, a local kick boxing champion, who Vivian says was amazed to see a picture of her mum in the exhibition - which they both thought was brilliant. There are lots of other images of Liverpool 8 on display – come and see if you can spot yourself. two children sitting at a table at a street party Vivian and Tito at the L8 Mandela Freedom Festival, 1988.
