Welcome Back?

We fought for the 'Motherland' - what happens now?

 


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Hear the stories of Black people who fought for Britain in the Second World War but were subjected to discrimination when they returned here to live.

Their stories are told through films, audio clips and testimony and we see how people such as Billy Strachan, Sam King and Connie Marks used their organising skills to fight discrimination.

The event will focus on how obstacles were overcome and examine whether the lessons have been learned and remembered by the generations of people living in Britain today.
