2015-10-29 - Black Soldiers in the First World War & The African Frontline 1914-1918

Black Soldiers in the First World War & The African Frontline 1914-1918

Event organised by Recognize Black Heritage & Culture

29 October 2015 13:00 – 16:30 Library of Birmingham, Heritage Learning Space (Floor 4)

Whilst the First World War conjures up images of the European battlefields, lesser consideration was (and still is) given to the Frontline on the African continent. Over two million people in Africa made huge sacrifices for the European Allies.100,000 men died in East Africa and 65,000 men from French North Africa and French West Africa lost their lives.

We are delighted to welcome Onyeka Nubia from Narrative Eye as our esteemed guest speaker to provide us with an in-depth insight. Also speaking will be Horace Barnes of the Wawi Project and Selena Carty of the Black Poppy Rose project. The event is hosted by Garry Stewart of Recognize Black Heritage & Culture.
