About this Item

Title

  • The Sidi Project - The African Diaspora of the Indian Ocean

Summary

  • Largely due to their scattered presence and their lack of a real unified social group, the African Diaspora of South Asia have largely been over-looked by academics and researchers, unlike those who crossed the Atlantic. Yet it is a trade route of much greater age and one of equal importance that needs further study and documentation, so that the history of these Afro-Asian communities will not be lost in future generations.The aim of The Sidi Project is to document the lives and culture of many of the African communities that exist in various countries around the Indian Ocean as a means to explain the history of the movement of slaves across the Indian Ocean. With many of the African diaspora’s living on the fringes of society, often poor, often uneducated and subject to being placed in to the lower rungs of South Asia’s strict hierarchical social ladder; they receive little attention. I want this to be a place where people can learn about these communities, about their history and their customs. To witness their life through my photography and most importantly know that they exist. It is through learning of their existence that the memory of the horrors of the slave trade can be kept alive and we, as humans, can learn from our mistakes.
