Black Lives Matter
Black Lives Matter
The death of George Floyd at the hands of a US police officer in Minneapolis, Minnesota on 25 May 2020 led to protests, demonstrations and marches across the world, in support of the Black Lives Matter movement and in response to police brutality being witnessed against Black people. Protests were also held in Edinburgh, including a static demonstration on Sunday 7th June, from which Museums & Galleries Edinburgh acquired a large donation of placards, banners and signs. This exhibition shows some of the placards and signs made for this protest and the stories they represent. They demonstrate the importance of the Black Lives Matter movement to Edinburgh residents and the wide-ranging impact the movement is having in the city.

The images in this exhibition have all been taken whilst working from home. Image quality will be improved as and when staff are able.
