Nottingham Black Archive's touring exhibition, which uncovers the hidden histories of soldiers from the Caribbean, Africa and South Asia who fought in the Great War. This project is funded by AHRC and is being delivered in association with Renaissance One.
2018 marks the centenary of WWI. Empire troops fought in the most infamous battles of the war, including Ypres and Passchendaele. The hidden histories of soldiers from Africa, the Caribbean and South Asia need to be recovered and their stories told. Nottingham Black Archive (NBA) has been working with Prof. Sharon Monteith of Nottingham Trent University and literature organisation Renaissance One with funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) Centre for Hidden Histories, to produce a touring exhibition to commemorate forgotten commonwealth troops
The We Will Remember Them exhibition, features original artwork from Jerwood Prize winner, Barbara Walker & Keith Piper and the local narratives of Irfan Malik and Waple Fleming and the contributions made by the Indians in Dulmial Village and the British West Indian Regiment.
