Venue: Portland Building, Portland Street, Portsmouth PO1 3AH

A public lecture by Selena Carty, Founder of the BlackPoppyRose

The BlackPoppyRose was created in 2010, following the realisation that in a country that many African/Black/West Indian/Pacific Island people call home, the history that represents them has been displaced over the course of time. In this illustrated talk, Selena Carty will outline why it is so important to remember not only the soldiers but also the peoples in these communities who contributed in any way for the war effort.

Time: 6-7 pm, followed by a drinks reception

Admission is free – please reserve your place on Eventbrite
