WW1 – An African Perspective

This project aims to recreate the African History of the Contribution of Black Soldiers to WW1. People of African descent contributed as colonies to the Great War however this is not recognised. 100 years later AVF wants to start to recreate the history of those who were involved in the war – from the shores of Jamaica to the African Plains. We go on a journey to find out what their experiences were and talk to present day Black soldiers to see how this has changed.
