UK Black History 365
Throughout November we’ll be revisiting the stories of the Black soldiers who fought in the Anglo-French wars of the 18th century and exploring the African and Caribbean heritage soldiers who fought in the Second World War. Check out our social media accounts or subscribe to our newsletter for regular updates.
The Black Poppy Rose commemorates the contributions of Africa, Black Britons, Caribbean, Pacific Islands & Indigenous communities to the war effort - as service men and women, and as civilians.
The Black Poppy Rose was launched in 2010 and aims to highlight the “largely untold historical legacies” from the 16th century onwards.
