Uganda 50 - Rebuilding Lives
7th July – 22nd December 2022
50 Years of Ugandan Asians
Discover the stories of real people who fled Uganda half a century ago to start new lives in Leicester and Leicestershire. Explore the objects and photographs that have come to symbolise their lives before and after expulsion, and reflect on the impact they have had on their community, this city and all our lives.
To witness the resilience and fortitude of the human spirit
Engage in meaningful reflection on the profound impact these individuals have had on their community, this city, and the broader human experience. This is an opportunity to bear witness to the resilience and fortitude of the human spirit, and to recognise the immense contributions of those who have faced incredible adversity and come out the other side stronger than ever.
