Organised by The National Archives, this small display explores the impact, both national and international, of the 1919 ‘Race Riots’ in Wales.

Learn about the connections between events in Welsh ports and widespread, global unrest during the era. Historical documents in this display show how both the government and the media reacted to unrest in the colonies, and a rising political awareness among the black community.
