Southern Voices exhibition 'Out of the shadows: 1914-18 perspectives of colonised people'

Wednesday, 4th October, 1:00pm – Friday, 20th October, 5:00pm

Hosted by Southern Voices

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. We are delighted to welcome them to the Library.

The exhibition is open Wednesdays to Fridays 1-5pm, and on Saturday 7 October 10am-4pm.

This exhibition is part of the Library's celebration of Black History Month (see also our Grunwick Strike talk and our hosting of the Townsend Productions play about Grunwick), as well as continuing our theme of commemoration of World War One hidden histories.
