How Black People Won World War 2 (Part 2)

Saturday 16 March

A detailed and extensive look at the African/Caribbean war effort with video clips and interviews with Black Spitfire & bomber pilots, Nigerian and Somali troops fighting in Burma, Black and Asian women secret agents, U-boats in the Caribbean and the importance of Africa and India’s raw materials.

 

Despite being on the British school curriculum many people have no idea that Black people played any part in World War 1 or 2.

This is a comprehensive overview of the African/Caribbean presence, contribution and importance based on the book ‘Black History Walks in London Volume 1’. https://jacarandabooks.co.uk/products/black-history-walks-1?_pos=1&_sid=84e10ccae&_ss=r
