'Black Victorians' at Manchester Art Gallery

Mary Seacole

A new exhibition Black Victorians opens today at Manchester Art Gallery.

It aims to 'give the first comprehensive overview of black people in British art in the 19th century' and to reveal 'the human stories' behind the paintings, sculptures, prints and photographs, including those of the first black British footballer Arthur Wharton; Crimean nurse and heroine, Mary Seacole; and celebrated actor, Ira Aldridge. It runs until 8 Jan 2006. If anyone goes to see it before I do, please let me know what you think.
