Black Blood Runs Red

Hard to believe this time last week I was at the launch of this year’s Birmingham Black History Month.

Motherland Calling: Black Blood Runs Red

Motherland Calling: Black Blood Runs Red

It was also the launch of Vanley Burke’s photographic exhibition Freedom or Death charting the final days of the apartheid era in South Africa. The exhibition is on till 7th November and is well worth a visit.

After the drinks reception and the speeches we were treated to a dramatised World War One experience. ‘Motherland Calling! Black Blood Runs Red looked at the untold story of the millions of black African, Caribbean and Asian soldiers who died in World War One.

There are still plenty of events and exhibitions to see and experience in the next few weeks. Please check the listings link.
