World War I in Africa
Title: World War I in Africa
Creator: Bomani, Kathleen; Enaudeau, Jacques
Abstract: World War I mainly happened in Europe, but it didn't only happen to Europeans. World War I also happened outside Europe, and it did so because of Europeans. By digging into the archives of former colonial powers, the site brings into the light the underplayed African parts of the first global conflict. With photos, cartoons, maps and caricatures, not only does the site aim to challenge the boilerplate narrative of WWI but to change the usual narrators. [according to site editor's information]
