Barbican Centre exhibition branded 'racist'

One of London's top galleries has been criticised for planning to host an exhibition that has been branded racist by some critics.

Exhibition B by Brett Bailey features live performers including black men and women shackled and caged.

Campaigners believe it is a detrimental portrayal of black people, but the Barbican has defended the exhibition as an exploration of black history.

BBC London's Alice Bhandhukravi spoke to journalist and campaigner Sara Myers, the Barbican's director of arts Louise Jeffreys and broadcaster and columnist Dotun Adebayo.
