On the 12 June 2020 St Albans residents took part in two Black Lives Matter protests. The first took place in Market Place just outside St Albans Museum + Gallery and the second in Verulamium near Westminster Lodge.
Some of the placards donated to the museum are currently on display in the windows of St Albans Museum + Gallery as part of our St Albans on Demand exhibition. Nominated by staff, volunteers and members of the public, each item in this St Albans on Demand is rooted in the local community, revealing hidden histories and opening up the museums' collections. You can find out more (or nominate an object) on the St Albans on Demand exhibition page.
St Albans on Demand is an ongoing exhibition but the Black Lives Matter display will be on display until the end of Black History Month 2020.
