Bombay Africans: 1850 to 1910

Follow the stories of the Bombay Africans; a group of Africans that accompanied British explorers such as Burton, Speke and Livingstone on expeditions in Africa. This exhibition reveals their contributions and legacies, and the important role they played on expeditions.

This exhibition is part of the Crossing Continents: Connecting Communities (PDF) project funded by the HLF, Esmeé Fairbairn Foundation and John Lyons Charity. The exhibition was first shown at the RGS-IBG in 2008.
