Remembering Biafra

Louisa Uchum Egbunike of Manchester Metropolitan University revisits a painful part of Nigeria's history - the Biafran War, which began in 1967.

Images from the conflict changed the perception of Africa in the West but, in a delightful and unexpected way, the war also brought together Louisa's father and mother in a London library.
