EXHIBITION - People, Signs & resistance: On the front-line
An exhibition inspired by unique film shot between the 1960's and 1980's by Clovis Salmon, a first generation Jamaican migrant who arrived in London in the 1950's, known locally as "Sam The Wheels" due to the cycle repair service he operates from his home in Railton Road the "Front Line" of Brixton.
