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’.

A SPOTLIGHT ON: WORLD WAR I AND THE BLACK PERSPECTIVE

A SPOTLIGHT ON: WORLD WAR I AND THE BLACK PERSPECTIVE
We’re very pleased that Garry Stewart, Director of Recognize Black Heritage and Culture will be joining us to deliver a talk about the contributions of African and Caribbean communities to World War I.

This fascinating talk will explain the background and involvement of these communities to World War I efforts and explore some of the reasons why, until recently, this contribution was washed away from the post war narrative.
