An exhibition celebrating some of Anglia Ruskin University’s prominent Black alumni and honorary degree recipients is on display throughout October.

The exhibition, on display at ARU’s campuses in Chelmsford, Cambridge and at ARU Peterborough, celebrates the positive impact made by people such as former WBA World Heavyweight Boxing champion David Haye, who was made an Honorary Doctor of Science in 2010, ARU Chancellor and surgeon Lord Ribeiro, former BBC presenter Mary Stretch, and actor Ricardo P. Lloyd, who graduated from ARU with an MBA in 2018.

Ricardo said: “It is a tremendous honour to be part of this exhibition and to share the stage with people like David Haye and other notable Black ARU alumni and honorary degree recipients.

“My MBA from Anglia Ruskin University helped build a solid foundation for my career.”

The exhibition at ARU campuses will run until Tuesday, 31 October. It is free to attend, and booking is not required.

The exhibition forms part of a series of events taking place to mark Black History Month at ARU.
