Talk on the Sickle Cell Society’s exhibition about the history of sickle cell disease in the UK.
The Sickle Cell Society launched a digital exhibition on the history of sickle cell in the UK at Black Cultural Archives.
Our Journey, Our Story: History and Memory of Sickle Cell Anemia in Britain 1950 – 2020 (launched on the BCA website on Monday 25th January) unveils the campaign to make sure that sickle cell was recognised by medical professionals and how treatment has evolved.
For the first time, the exhibition collects the testimonies and experiences of people living with sickle cell; photographs and archives about the history of sickle cell campaigning; and original art by Black artists.
Come and join us for a conversation around the themes of the exhibition with Professor Dame Elizabeth Anionwu, the first sickle cell nurse specialist.
Saturday 27th March
2pm – 3:30pm
The donation will be shared between the Black Cultural Archives and the Sickle Cell Society.
