Divided by Race, United in War and Peace (2013), is a moving documentary about race relations in Britain during and after the Second World War. It considers the evolution of a multicultural society from the vantage point of black and white veterans, featuring testimonies from 14 of these hidden heroes, particularly those West Indian and African men and women who volunteered for the war effort. They risked their lives to serve under the flag in times of war, then faced a second battle, their right to remain under that flag, as British citizens.
Filmmakers Marc Wadsworth and Deborah Hobson will introduce the film and take questions from the audience.
