Pendleton tenants lead Black History month events
Salford has a diverse history, so Pendleton Together were proud to celebrate Black History Month again this year by supporting a tenant lead project to display exhibition at Pendleton Gateway Library.
The exhibition, entitled “from Shadows of War and Empire, featured photos that showed Word War I from a black perspective and the roles of the British colonies within it.
Additionally, Pendleton Together and Salford City Council supported members of Salford Refugee Forum and Visible Outcomes to brave the torrential rain at the end of October to bring the community together for a clean up on the Broadwalk. Participants later dried off at Langworthy Cornerstones where they were joined by local dignitaries.
Lynne Harrison, Community Initiative Officer at Pendleton Together, said: “it is great to see so many people from different cultures and ages coming together, celebrating the diversity of our great City of Salford.” Cath Anderson, the tenant behind the exhibition, added: “We were fortunate to be offered a chance to display this wonderful exhibition during our Past, Present and Future events which we ran in the summer.
“The exhibition was put together for the 2018 WW1 Centenary by The Southern Voices Group and we felt there was a possibility colonial soldiers passed through Salford Docks on troopships heading out to the rest of the world."
