"As The University of Manchester’s first and currently only Black woman Professor, I’m especially honoured to be featured in this excellent exhibition. I wanted to take part because I want my role to inspire greater diversity in academia in general and at Russell Group universities in particular as there are just a handful of of us at the moment and that really needs to change"
