About Four Fathers
The Four Fathers project is about recording and documenting the relationships between men from South Asian backgrounds who have lived and live in Birmingham.The experiences and realities of these men, young and old, are often overlooked and unrecorded apart from the personal memories and stories within each family.
We hope to find and record the inter-generational relationships of fathers and sons and also look at the parallels and differences of each person’s story to understand what has changed and why. We also want to record traditions of what is still important and why.
Through the project, we hope there will be a greater understanding of different generational experiences and the possibility of all to access them through the Birmingham Library Archive and this site. If there is anything that you feel you would like to contribute or have any feedback do use the form on our contact page.
