Silu is a retired social worker with a lifelong interest in history. When she was at school, ( a long time ago!), there was no ‘Black ‘ history. Black people from the past were talked about in her home but not by by her teachers. As an adult, she has researched some major historical events and found ‘hidden histories’ of black people within them. In recent years, her family history research has also shown how local, national and international history is intertwined within her own family.
