My Grandparents’ War
Follow international stars as they journey into the past to learn about their grandparents’ wartime experiences, and discover the extraordinary impact of global conflict on their families.
Singer-songwriter Emeli Sandé explores her grandparents’ remarkable stories, which span World War II, the Mau Mau insurgency in Kenya, and the fight for independence in Zambia. She faces a mix of emotions: “Both sets of my grandparents were involved in violent struggles in Africa,” she says. “One, tasked with upholding the British Empire. The other: trying to overthrow it.”
