THE Writing on the Wall present a fascinating
archive of letters and documents highlighting the plight of black soldiers,
seafarers, and workers in Liverpool following demobilisation in 1919. This
archive contains testimony from men from the Caribbean, West Africa and
other colonial territories, who had fought for England on land and at sea
during the Great War and were then left stranded, destitute and subject to
racial violence on the streets of Liverpool.

Writing on the Wall have been presented with a number of significant,

They were then subjected to verbal,
physical and institutional racial abuse on the streets of Liverpool. They
reveal their plight of daily racism and loss of jobs because of the boycott
by white workers, a boycott often supported by the trades unions, and of
being stranded in a country that no longer wanted them, even though they had
fought for England during WW1.
This tension led to the race riots of
1919, resulting in many serious assaults and attacks, and the death of
Charles Wootton, a Black seaman murdered by a White mob. The unique nature
of this material is that it contains the written word of those
ex-servicemen, sailors and workers who were being confronted with abuse and
assault, while facing destitution.
WoW's Co-Director, Madeline Heneghan says:- "This is a highly
significant archive in terms of Black and British History. With support from
the Heritage Lottery Fund, we are delighted to be able to share this
fascinating and moving collection with the people of Liverpool in a creative
and stimulating way."
