This exhibition takes its name from the long, sandy road linking Bechuanaland (now Botswana) to Northern Rhodesia (now Zambia), crossing South West Africa (now Namibia) and Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) along the way. It was the road along which refugees travelled to escape from the South African oppression in the 1960s, often helped on their desperate journey by humanitarian organisations or mysterious foreign drivers.

Understanding secret intelligence, what it can and cannot do, how it is managed and deployed, how it supports government decision-making and action, now forms part of an increasing number of university degree programmes. Wider society also has an interest in the topic. This presentation aims to provide food for thought and act as a catalyst for a wider debate.
The Travelling Gallery will visit the University again this autumn, and this time presents an exhibition by Lauren Printy Currie in collaboration with Glasgow Women’s Library.
