‘Black Wales Remembers 1914-1919′
The Black History Month Wales 2014 Steering Committee have chosen together to deliver a programme of activities with ‘1914 – 1919’ at its core, bringing to life the untold history and shared experience of Wales’ black communities during this period, inspired by a visit to the RAF Museums’ ‘Pilots of the Caribbean’ exhibition and the Merchant Navy Seamen’s Memorial in London.
Work has begun in preparation for a wide range of activities commencing with the official launch event at Newport’s Riverfront on Friday 26 September. Wales-wide performances, film screenings, workshops, talks and visits will continue throughout the season and a spectacular showcase event will take place at the Wales Millennium Centre on Saturday 25 October.
The launch will take place at the prestigious Riverfront Theater & Arts Centre, Newport.
