Anti-Apartheid Legacy:
Centre of Memory & Learning

28 Penton Street, Islington Former London HQ of the exiled African National Congress

Opening soon as a permanent home for our programme, The Anti-Apartheid Legacy: Centre of Memory and Learning (CML) will promote the legacy and values of the Southern African liberation struggle and the UK’s central role within this world-changing history, whilst supporting contemporary discourse around social (in)justice, inclusion and multi-racial collaboration for social transformation.

Through permanent exhibition and a rotation of content through temporary gallery spaces, a community learning garden, seminar and workshop spaces and a reading room, visitors will learn about, and from, the heritage of the anti-apartheid struggle.
