Black Poppies – Thursday 23rd October

Black poppies talk and discussion led by Stephen Bourne

5.00 – 8.00pm
Southwark Council Offices,
160 Tooley Street, SE1

All Southwark residents and workers and visitors are warmly invited to come to a free and fantastically
interesting talk about the previously little known story of the black British community during the First World
War. The Black Poppies story is about heroines and heroes, tragedies and triumphs, love and hate,
journeys across oceans and the start of a new multicultural society here is the UK. Stephen’s Bourne’s
new book about all of this is called Black Poppies. This talk and the accompanying exhibition are being
paid for by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
