Riots, work, trade, religion, illicit love, gay history – Old Market is seeped in History.

Vice & Virtue invites you to a series of talks by local and national experts on the many aspects of Old Market’s History. Seventh in our series is:

Black GI’s in Britain

1943 Bristol tensions in the racially segregated US army spill over into full blown fighting on the streets of Old Market between Black and White GIs.

Using Bristol as a case study Professor Neil Wynn explores the impact of US racial politics on war time Britain.

Suggested donation £2
