Stories of Omission The conflict and experiences of Black soldiers in the First World War

Stories of Omission: Conflict and the experience of Black soldiers

Recognize Black Heritage & Culture and University of Birmingham

Stories of Omission set out to explore the representation of Black soldiers during and after the Great War. We wanted to find out about the types of information available to the general
public but, perhaps more importantly, what stories were missed out, hidden, ignored or disregarded, with the intention of ‘rectifying the omission’.

Holding The Centre

When everything tells you who you should be, how can you know who you are?

All his life Micaiah has been told he is clever, special, different. A successful entrepreneur, generous son and brother, so what if his pride in his achievements spills over into arrogance; he is Micaiah! He might have been born in the inner city but he was still a boy when he left those low zones. He went to one of the best schools in the country, worked hard, made connections and now less than ten years later, he’s a successful events organiser, and importer.
