Mr T and Muhammed Ali celebrated by display looking at black role models in toys and games.

July 17, 2013, 10:17 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- A new exhibition opening at the V&A Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green will explore the way a black child in Britain in the 1960s and 1970s would find role models in the world of toys and games. Afro Supa Hero will open on 14 September 2013 and run until February 2014, and will be part of the museum's Black History Month celebrations in October 2014. The museum is located in Bethnal Green, close to Fenchurch Street station. Visitors to London hoping to find the best deals on hotels and other accommodation, should see LondonTown.com, London's most reliable website for hotels near Fenchurch Street and other central London stations.

Afro Supa Hero is a snapshot of a childhood and journey to adulthood, shown through a personal collection of pop cultural heroes and heroines of the African diaspora. Jon Daniel's action figures, comic books and games offer an insight into the experience of a boy of African Caribbean heritage growing up in 1960s and 1970s Britain, in search of his identity.Born in southwest London, Jon Daniel found his positive black role models in the West Indian culture of his family and the African-American culture of the US. In his late twenties, Jon began collecting 1970s action figures, feeling that they most strongly embodied the era of his childhood. In the display the likes of Meteor Man, Mr T and Lieutenant Uhura stand alongside real-life icons Muhammad Ali, Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela. Also on show are games, and comics including Black Lightning, The Falcon and Lobo, one of a two-issue series featuring the first leading African American character in the genre. For more information on this exhibition and other events at the V&A Museum of Chidhood, see LondonTown.com, which contains the latest information for all the best tourist attractions and museums in the capital.
