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.

Part of a series of free talks at Trinity – Vice & Virtue: Discovering the History of Old Market 1900-2005 – invites you to a series of talks by local and national experts on the many aspects of Old Market’s History. We will be looking beneath the area’s reputation and exploring the many cultures that have lived here, its national significance as an area of architectural conservation and key moments of historical interest.

There is a full list of events here.
