Hackney Museum is currently hosting an excellent exhibit in the history of radical women and women’s activism in the Borough. (Obviously if I had my act together, I would have posted this yesterday on International Women’s Day)
A visit is recommended – there is a great spread of material from the Suffragettes through to the peace movement and even Nicola Thorp’s shoes.
There’s an interview on East London Radio about the exhibition too:
Hackney Museum, 1 Reading Ln, London E8 1GQ.
- 9.30am – 5.30pm Tues, Wed, Fri
- 9.30am – 8.30pm Thu
- 10am – 5pm Sat
Nearest station: Hackney Central
The Museum is also currently working on an exhibition of black music in the borough and seeking contributions and input.
