In Conversation with Professor Dame Elizabeth Anionwu
Come and join us for a conversation around the themes of our digital exhibition with Professor Dame Elizabeth Anionwu, the first sickle cell nurse specialist.
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 Anaemia 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.
