Exhibitions and resources for Black History Month and beyond

FURD has several exhibitions suitable for Black History Month activities available for hire. The first four listed below were written and produced by FURD; the second four were produced by other organisations.

The exhibitions are just one part of our unique Resources and Information Centre, which also contains a unique collection of books, films, magazines and other resources on the subjects close to our heart - sport, equality and community cohesion. To find out more, follow the link below, send us an enquiry or come and have a look round - most of our physical resources can be borrowed.
