This website is brought to you by The-Latest Limited, the social enterprise arm of Britain’s first dedicated citizen journalism news portal The-Latest.com. It has forged a role in providing a high profile media platform, which includes social media, for ordinary members of the public to connect, share and learn to tell their stories. Some of these are the previously unheard voices in marginalised communities, including Black and Minority Ethnic people, migrants, the homeless, war veterans, young people and people with mental health issues.
Our organisation has developed a wealth of experience in the area of collating, recording and archiving oral history and in particular with reference to World War Two. We successfully completed a full length film Divided by race, united in war and peace in 2013, and an accompanying photography project, based on World War Two oral testimonies. Then there was our work with the BBC in 2014 to produce a version of our documentary entitled Fighting For King and Empire, Britain’s Caribbean Heroes, which was aired by the public broadcaster in 2015 to much critical acclaim.
