Hatcham x Black History Month
You may have already seen the stunning Ancestry.com adverts on George Arthur Roberts which is narrated by his great-granddaughter Dr Samantha Harding. George was Britain's first black firefighter based at New Cross fire station and Samantha will be joining us on October 30 at 7pm for our society's first live online talk.
Samantha will speak about George's bravery during the Blitz which earned him a British Empire Medal, his beginnings in Trinidad and his legacy. He was also a founding member of an anti-racism campaign group headquartered in South London.
The talk is free! So grab a glass of wine and enjoy the event where there will be opportunities for questions at the end. RSVP here and you'll be sent a link to the event.
