Golden Oldies Black History Month event - Our memories, our contributions
Thu 27 October 2016, 13:00 – 16:00 BST
Exhibition and talk by Selena Carty of Black Poppy Rose.
Share in the experiences and sadly unheralded contributions made by black soldiers who have fought for the UK over the years.
African/Black/Caribbean communities have consistently contributed to civilisation, even in the face of adversity and in spite of mankind's most abhorrent treatment and atrocities against us. Throughout history, many of our generations have been displaced; our memories, our pain and our loss are universal. Whilst we do not wish to focus on negative aspects of history, we feel that it is important that our ancestors are recognised for their dues, of which many lost their lives in the process.
A two course Caribbean lunch is available for £6 Please book in advance
