The Arthur Wharton exhibition, about the world’s first black professional footballer and world record-breaking sprinter was created by Doncaster Museums. It consists of 7 laminated posters, approximately 104cm x 69cm in size.  The panels can be attached to walls using either blu-tak or velco strips.

The panels detail Wharton's life in South Yorkshire and how he worked as a pub landlord and a miner as well as being a remarkable sportsman. The exhibition combines black history, local history and social history.
