They represent the smallest group when both race and gender are considered together, making them three times less likely to be professors than their white female counterparts and half as likely as Black men. As is fostering an environment that students from all heritages feel reflected, understood and supported. To highlight this fact and raise awareness about the systematic setbacks that Black women are forced to face when navigating this, the South Bank Centre has launched a fantastic new exhibition called Phenomenal Women: Portraits of UK Black Female Professors.
The exhibition showcases 45 brilliant, Black women who have been professors at some point in the last three years — from the award-winning author Bernadine Evaristopoet and playwright Joan Anim-Addo and the first woman ever to be appointed head of a UK dental school, Cynthia Pine.
It has been curated by British academic, writer and activist Dr Nicola Rollock, photographed by Bill Knight and will run from 10 October until 8 November, specifically to coincide with and celebrate Black History Month. Here, you can take your time learning about and appreciating the compelling images of these brilliant women, for free. Originally the organisers planned for the exhibition to take place inside, but because of the coronavirus pandemic, they had to re-think a way of giving these photos the visibility they deserve.
