Legends we can be…
What if there was a place for you to share stories of your heroes and justice seekers?
A place for change agents to celebrate their legacy and the legacy of their community. A museum of legends.
We begin with the story of Gertrude Paul...
A group of young people from Chapeltown have been working hard to answer this question and curate their own museum. We are delighted to announce the launch of this interactive experience and share their stories.
Ujima is partnering with Story Makers Company and CRED at Leeds Beckett University to create this exciting new opportunity. Ujima is a social action project based in Chapeltown, Leeds that works to improve educational outcomes for Black children. Founded by Marina Active and Adel Trew, Ujima seeks to address educational inequality issues affecting Black children in mainstream education. To find out more about Ujima, please go to www.projectujima.co.uk.

We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to the family of Mrs Paul for their generosity in allowing us to centre the Museum of Legends on their beloved mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. The images and artefacts which you have shared bring a small part of her exceptional story to life and invite future aspirational stories. We invite the users of this website to respectfully honour Mrs Paul's wonderful legacy and memory.
