“Staying Together As One” is an exhibition of Somali artefacts from personal collections and from the Powell Cotton Museum in Kent. This is being launched by Women’s Inclusive Team (WIT), a Somali-led charity in Tower Hamlets, thanks to support from the Mayor of Tower Hamlets. This is part of a Migration Theme about the History of African Heritage Communities in Tower Hamlets.
The exhibition will be a tool for telling stories which have been airbrushed out of history. These need to be remembered so we can make a sustainable difference in tackling Afriphobia. These stories aim to empower marginalised Communities. WIT will be working with other African and African-Caribbean Communities. WIT will be sharing Culture, History, Achievements and Contributions. The exhibition and workshops are open to all.
