SeaCity Museum has now installed a trail for Black History Month in the Southampton Stories exhibition to showcase some of the important stories from Southampton’s African Caribbean communities.

People of African and Caribbean origin have lived and worked in Southampton for hundreds of years. Their lives and experiences are woven into the fabric of Southampton’s heritage. This trail reveals just some of important stories and memories from their perspective, covering topics such as D-Day, war efforts, sourcing Caribbean foods, sports and more.

The trail highlights stories of both famous and lesser known people, such as the three Wallace Brothers who played for Southampton FC in 1988, Barbadian-born Gordon Greenidge, who played cricket for Hampshire from 1970–87, Jamaican-born Ben Davis who joined the RAF in 1943 and saw active service in the Middle East and Germany, and even Guinean-born Jacques Francis who was a specialist salvage diver in Tudor times.

The trail has been created by the Black Heritage Association, Southampton, in association with Dr Nazneen Ahmed, Writer in Residence for the Southampton Stories Project which is funded by Arts Council England.
