Event description

Description

A detailed and extensive look at the African, Caribbean and Asian 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

Black History Walks has delivered this event at the Imperial War museum for over ten years. Despite being on the British school curriculum many people have no idea that Black people played any part in either World War 1 or World War 2. This interactive presentation will fill in the huge gaps as well as provide references and resources.
