This young readers’ edition of Black Poppies illuminates fascinating stories of Black British servicemen who fought on the battlefields of the First World War, as well as those who supported the war effort on the home front. Their stories of bravery and sacrifice are told through a focus on particular men, women and children. The book concludes with the battles on the streets of London during the Race Riots of 1919, in which Black Britons fought for equality and acceptance.
