Black GIs in the West Country
This fascinating evening brings two stories of how America's racial relations and civil rights movement came to the West Country during the Second World War.

To begin, Kate Werran will talk about the dramatic ‘wild west’ shoot out that took place in Launceston, Cornwall between black American GIs and military police.

Followed by Professor Mary Louise Roberts, University of Wisconsin, USA who will share the incredible story of Leroy Henry, an African-American soldier who was saved from a hanging in Shepton Mallett.
