A SPOTLIGHT ON: WORLD WAR I AND THE BLACK PERSPECTIVE

A SPOTLIGHT ON: WORLD WAR I AND THE BLACK PERSPECTIVE
We’re very pleased that Garry Stewart, Director of Recognize Black Heritage and Culture will be joining us to deliver a talk about the contributions of African and Caribbean communities to World War I.

This fascinating talk will explain the background and involvement of these communities to World War I efforts and explore some of the reasons why, until recently, this contribution was washed away from the post war narrative.
