Stephen Bourne's new book Mother Country - Britain's Black Community on the Home Front 1939-45 (The History Press) unearths a 'hidden history' of Britain and the Second World War.

Stephen's illustrated talk highlights the contribution to the British war effort made by some of the black Britons he has featured in the book.

These include the community leader Dr Harold Moody, Esther Bruce (Stephen's adopted aunt), and black senior citizens who have been interviewed about the home front in Africa and the Caribbean.
