This October as part of Live at the library, we will be celebrating Black History Month, with a series of exhibitions and performances throughout Oldham.
Our Heritage, Libraries, and Arts Services have a lot of activities in person and online, here are just a couple of the cultural highlights:
Oreo (pictured above), a one-women show which explores the masks we wear to put our heads above the parapet, in a climate of systemic racism.
The Legacies of Biafra, an exhibition at Gallery Oldham, features works from the artistic collective; Nigeria Art Society UK (NASUK), which will be exhibited alongside archival materials on the war in Biafra, as well as a selection of short films on the topic.
