Recognize Black Heritage & Culture & Voices of War and Peace
Great opportunity for Community volunteers!
Stories of Omission: Conflict and the experience of Black soldiers.
This is a unique chance to gain, hone and develop excellent research skills whilst helping to uncover untold stories that speak of the experiences of Black soldiers during and after World War I. The project will focus upon representations within the media and popular culture around that time, as well as revealing previously hidden / ignored / omitted information, narratives and stories.
There is much to be explored and this is a chance to investigate, reveal and contribute pieces of our history that are often overlooked. You will be fully briefed on the project scope, trained and supported with some ideas and areas of focus. In return, we ask for your commitment, enthusiasm and support with this exciting project.
The first meeting will be held at The Library of Birmingham on Saturday 11th February at 1 pm until 4 pm in the Heritage Learning Space, 4th floor. Address: Centenary Square, Broad St, Birmingham, B1 2ND
The project will be fully outlined and we will provide you with contacts for support. Please come along – all volunteers are greatly appreciated, whether you are able to give an hour’s support or several, everyone is welcome.
This is our chance to reveal our history for the future - come and join us!
