The University of Brighton is to host an exhibition of oral testimonies, photography and memorabilia on the lives and careers of Black-British champions in cycling. Based on the research of Dr Marlon Moncrieffe, Made in Britain will run from December 10-20 at Grand Parade Galleries. Entry is free.
Viewed through sociological, historical and educational lenses, the exhibition focuses on the Black-British perspective of the nation's emergence as a world force in cycling over the last 15 to 20 years.
The exhibition invites its viewers to consider representation at elite level in the sport of cycling, amidst concepts of nationalism, 'race' and racism and asks whether this is a microcosm of how racial inequalities function in all aspects of wider society.
Here’s Dr Marlon Moncrieffe discussing the exhibition.
