Mint Yard Lecture: They also served
15th October 2018 @ 6:15 pm - 7:45 pm £6
In July 2017 a commemoration service was held in Birmingham to remember the largely forgotten contributions of African and Caribbean soldiers in the First World War. This service coincided with the launch of a touring exhibition, which arrives at York Explore on Monday 15 October.
Join Linda Ali to uncover the experiences of some of these patriotic young men, who had a strong desire to help the mother country fight against German aggression. Many lost their lives in the conflict. Those who survived returned to their homes in the Caribbean or travelled to Britain to pick up their lives again.
This event will take place in the Marriott Room and tickets cost £6, or £5 with a YorkCard
