Surrey’s Black History – E058 (Face to Face and Online)
20 October 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm BST
S.I. Martin works as a Curator and Heritage Consultant with museums, archives and the education sector to bring diverse histories to wider audiences. He has published six books of historical fiction and non-fiction for adult and teenage readers.
Join S.I. Martin on a journey through Surrey’s pre-1948 Black history. This presentation will feature the lives of enslaved young runaways, domestic workers, mixed heiresses, soldiers, sailors, nurses, entrepreneurs and many more. It will demonstrate how these overlooked and ‘low-profile’ personal stories impacted the politics and culture of the county and the country.
Please note: Due to easing of social distancing measures, face to face talks currently have a capacity of 45 attendees. This is set at 65% of full capacity to ensure safety for our users. We will endeavour to increase this number to full capacity in due course.
This event will be delivered face to face and online (via Zoom) simultaneously. Please ensure that you select the correct ticket type when making your booking.
