Last updated:17 August 2017

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

Runs: From 4th Oct 2017 to 20th Oct 2017

Event time: 13:00 to 17:00

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

On Wednesday 4 October at 2pm there will be a 'curator's tour' of the exhibition by colleagues from Southern Voices. Free; no need to book.

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.
