Hidden Treasures is an ongoing project by the REACH Staff Network. It puts a spotlight on people from black and minority ethnic (BME) backgrounds whose contributions and achievements are often overlooked by mainstream media, history books and conversations.
During Black History Month 2018 (October) you'll be able to visit our Hidden Treasures display at:
- City Campus - Tuesday 2 – Wednesday 17 October, first floor Newton.
- Clifton Campus – Wednesday 17 – 30 October, Pavilion
- Brackenhurst Campus – Tuesday 30 October - Wednesday 14 November, library
NTSU are also hosting a series of events and activities throughout October to mark the occasion, which staff and students are welcome to attend. Check the events page to find out more.
During the coming year we will be broadening our focus to include all BME backgrounds. We are interested in people locally and globally, in distant history, the recent past and our present society.
Let us know of any hidden treasures you would like to see made visible and why, and check back to this page for updated links, book lists, information and resources.
