Black Female Icons of Lewisham
Brockley Max wants to celebrate some incredible women who have lived or worked in Lewisham. We want to commission three murals of significant Black women, not just those who are famous, but the sometimes less well-known women activists, campaigners or champions of a cause who have had an impact nationally or internationally; and do we have some amazing women from Lewisham!
We want to paint the murals during Brockley Max and film the painting work as a visual record for our website. Each mural will have a QR code so people can find out more about the women and their work.
Our plans are at an early stage and dependant on funding, but we have some incredible women in mind (listed below), who you can find out more about them by clicking on their name. Do let us know what you think about the project, and if you know of other Black women campaigners who have a connection to Lewisham, let us know in the comments box below and tell us why. If you can add a link, even better!
