Black history month

In Events on November 8, 2009 at 2:23 pm

I didn’t know this was on but Waltham Forest council had a Black history month with numerous events.

I was in the main library in Walthamstow the other day and in the entrance they have a fascinating photofraphic exhibition of black Commonwealth soldiers who served in the First World War. It told a lot of the fighting in Africa (an often overlooked theater of that war) and about the West Indian regibents who fought. It’s worth dropping in for five minutes if you’re passing by.
