BLACK SOCIAL HISTORY : TIME LINE IMAGES OF BLACK SOLDIERS SACRIFICE IN THE WHITE MAN'S WARS:

One of the questions that have eluded me with no answers to the very basic question it self, is the fact that Black People were prepared to join the various European Armies knowing full well they may die in a land far far way from home, in a war that has nothing to do with them, of no benefit to them or there family nor there country, Its a white mans war and all the benefits will go them m, a clear abuse of colonial power/and why die for them ?  I know its difficult for me to understand, I am now living in a different era compared to the period of the first world war when I am certain the Propaganda to the chiefs and village elders would have been so finely tuned to make them believe that the war was in there interest to fight to save there world/
























You look at the black and white photographs of smiling black soldiers grinning at the camera as the photographs is been take. This pattern of Black Africans, West Indians, South Americans and many black people from many different parts of the world who were prepared to give there lives for a cause they do not even understand why they so far from home and having to die for a cause that did not have a nothing to do with them.
