The scheduling of this display was disrupted by the pandemic. Alison continued: “During lockdown, the world changed yet again with the public and fatal arrest of black man George Perry Floyd Jr. These events ignited a new visibly cross-cultural response within the Black Lives Matters movements. The world is now a different place and this project was always due to continue, but now with renewed urgency.”
