Portraits of black women professors are being exhibited to honour their presence and achievements working in British academia.
The exhibition, Phenomenal Women: Portraits of UK Black Female Professors, features portraits of 40 professors across a broad range of subjects including law, medicine, creative writing and sociology.
Taken by the photographer Bill Knight, the portraits have been researched and curated by Dr Nicola Rollock, reader in equity and education at Goldsmiths, University of London. She has been examining the career experiences and strategies of black female professors at UK higher education establishments over the past three years.
The exhibition aims to highlight the presence and excellence of all the women included, and provide a platform for debate about what it takes to reach this highest level of academic scholarship.
The portraits will be on display from March 18 until the end of the month, at London's City Hall.
