Over the weekend, the Manchester Art Gallery debuted Black Victorians, a wonderful new exhibit that documents the history of blacks in 19th century art. Above are Arthur Wharton, Britain's first black footballer and Mary Seacole, a pioneering nurse and heroine of the Crimean War. The event is co-sponsored by the Professional Footballers' Association. It's a beautiful collection, a mixture of paintings, daguerrotypes and photographs. More pics at this BBC slideshow.
