Taking Liberties

Volunteers gained an exclusive peek at the British Library’s Taking Liberties exhibition, including an interview with curator Matthew Shaw for this special report. The exhibition offers an inspiring array of original documents charting Britains 1,000-year struggle for freedom and rights. The Magna Carta, Habeas Corpus, the Death Warrant of King Charles I, Republican Flags, suffragette Emily Davidsons purse, literature from the OZ trial and more, all feature in this evocative exhibition.  Volunteers also discuss the exhibition with writer Tim Black and consider whether rights handed down have the same value as rights fought for?
