National Justice Museum opens call out for object donations from Black Legal Professionals
Sharing the experiences and contributions of Black legal professionals through objects
In 2021 we amplified the contributions made by Black legal professionals to the justice system in a display in our Project Lab. The display raised the issue that, as a justice museum, our collection currently only houses legal objects that belonged to white male legal professionals. We need to address this. We want our collections to reflect the diversity within the legal profession, and to share the lived experiences and the contributions made by Black legal professionals.
This particular part of our collection relies on donations from those working in the legal system. If you would like to assist us in achieving this and wish to donate/gift an object that reflects your work as a legal professional then please get in touch with Bev Baker, Senior Curator and Archivist. The words and experiences associated with the objects are equally valuable.
