Celebration of prominent black candidates from Cambridge University.

Celebration of prominent black candidates from Cambridge University.

A new exhibition will celebrate prominent black graduates from Cambridge University.

Fourteen portraits, along the library's Royal Corridor, feature the first black students and more well-known alumni.

The exhibition includes portraits of actor Thandie Newton and author Zadie Smith and opens on 1 October.

The university was criticised in June after an investigation revealed comparatively low numbers of black undergraduates.

The exhibition was put together by the Black Cantabs Research Society, a student group set up in 2015 to "create a link between past black scholars, present students, and prospective students."

    

It opens on the first day of the UK's Black History Month.
