Divided by Race, United in War and Peace

All the details
A screening of Divided by Race, United in War and Peace – a warm and life-affirming film, produced and directed by Marc Wadsworth, which examines race relations in Britain during and after the Second World War.   The film will be screened at St Catherine’s Church, Pepys Road, SE14 5TY on Friday 19th September as part of the Telegraph Hill Ward Community Weekend 19th-21st Sept.
At the core of Divided by Race, United in War and Peace are the testimonies of 13 surviving veterans, West Indian and African young men and women who volunteered to join the war effort and soon afterwards returned to live in Britain.

They risked their lives to serve under the British flag in times of war, then faced a second battle – their right to remain under that flag as British citizens. Until now their stories have not been properly heard nor has the contribution they made, both in helping win the war but also changing the face of British society, been fully recognised.

Divided by Race, United in War and Peace seeks to redress the imbalance in historical narratives and explore the evolution of a multi-cultural society from a unique perspective.

About Telegraph Hill Centre

Telegraph Hill Centre is not funded by local authority grants.

Telegraph Hill Centre derives its income from letting out the Centre’s main spaces (for activites listed in the programme for example) and through a very kind annual donation from St Catherine’s Church. By sustaining itself this way, the Centre is able to offer additional services free at the point of use for people in need or excluded from mainstream society. The Centre has been doing this for 40 years. Examples of services include:

  • Services for people who have experienced homelessness
  • Services for people recovering from drug or alcohol abuse
  • Services for isolated elders
  • Services for Youth living in and around the area, specialising in counselling and support
  • Support for pre-school (under 5s) children and their parents (Telegraph Hill Playclub) to tackle isolation and provide support for both parents and children

In addition, Telegraph Hill Centre and St Catherine’s Church have sponsored and supported Telegraph Hill Festival and Hill Station since their inception.

We believe in upholding human dignity.   If you’d like to hep us please donate towards the work we do, ask us for more information or get involved.
