The faculty were delighted to host a Black Classicists Exhibition in the Ioannou Centre celebrating the important role of African Americans in classics. This fascinating international exhibition celebrates the contributions of Black Classicists to the field of Classics over the 19th and 20th centuries and shines a spotlight on both the academic accomplishments of its portrait subjects and the structural barriers they overcame in the course of their careers.
Staff and students at St Gabriel’s School, Newbury brought the exhibition over from the USA and it has been touring various locations around the UK.
The Faculty celebrated its arrival here with a launch event including a presentation by students from St Gabriel’s.
