More about 100 Objects Bradford

Earlier this year, we mentioned a new online exhibition that shows 100 of the most important objects in Special Collections at Bradford.  Not all the objects directly concern peace and protest, though there are many links.  The latest one definitely does.  In Banning Britain’s H-bomb, object no. 11, we look at the striking images produced by the Direct Action Committee in the 1950s and 1960s for their non-violent protests against Britain’s nuclear weapons.  The account also considers the legacy of this small but influential group.
