Children Born to Black GIs and British Women in the Second World War At The Higgins Bedford

Saturday 9 November 2019

Time: 2.30 – 3.30pm, £5.90/£4.70 concessions

Join Lucy Bland, Professor of Social and Cultural History at Anglia Ruskin University, to explore the history of the children born to black GIs and British women during the Second World War. Many suffered racism as well as the stigma of illegitimacy. Now in their 70s, many have told their stories, which have been captured in Lucy’s recently published book and will be shared in this talk.

To book your place, please use our online booking system or visit Bedford Central Box Office at 27 Harpur Street, Bedford or telephone 01234 718044.
