From the Shadows of War and Empire

When we think about World War I, what comes to mind?  Trenches, poppies, war poets, millions of lives lost or wounded on the bloody battles of the Western Front.  This exhibition attempts to shed some light on the untold and unfamiliar facts and the stories of colonised people of the time – that are an integral and important part of hidden history.

In 2015, Southern Voices, a Manchester based community group, received a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to develop this exhibition exploring the role and experiences of colonised peoples of the British West Indies, Nigeria, India and German and British East Africa during World War I.Heritage Lottery Funded
