Black Poppies - Britain's Black Community and the Great War. Stephen Bourne

National Army Museum free lunchtime lectures.

In 1914 Britain was home to at least 10,000 black citizens. Despite being discouraged from serving in the British Army many of them joined all branches of the forces and contributed to the war effort on the home front. With first-hand accounts and original photographs, this talk will focus on the military and civilian wartime experiences of black men and women - from the trenches to the music halls.
Bourne is a researcher and writer and has worked with the British Film Institute and the Imperial War Museum.
