The Great War for Civilisation

During the First World War, African-Caribbean volunteers joined Britain’s armed forces, including the new flying services. The volunteers fought well and suffered casualties, but they faced widespread prejudice and discrimination. Many Black veterans were changed by the war and returned home determined to oppose injustice.

In the 1930s, the rise of Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy and Imperial Japan threatened world peace and Black people were again called to fight for freedom.
