Pop Up Exhibition: Being Mixed-Race: Stories of Britain’s Black GI Babies

An exhibition in the form of seven pop-up banners displaying photographs and text draws on research on the children born in World War II to black GIs and British women, as documented in Lucy Bland’s recent book Britain’s ‘Brown Babies’: the Stories of Children Born to Black GIs and White Women in the Second World War.
There will also be access to oral extracts from some of the interviews that the ‘children’ have given, now housed at BCA. And , there will also be two screens: one with many more photographs on a loop and the other with a short video of speeches by two interviewees given at the book launch in June 2019 of Lucy Bland’s book
The exhibition will be accompanied by two Saturday panel discussions at BCA:
Being Mixed Race: History and identity Sat Nov 16th, 11.00-5pm
Black and mixed-race children and the care system and the controversy around trans-racial adoption, 1940s-present Sat Nov 23rd, 11.00-4.30pm
