Scots in the Caribbean - Scotland's hidden history

EXPAND your knowledge of Scottish history with this surprising and enlightening lecture by Professor Geoff Palmer.

Did you know that most Jamaicans have family connections with Scotland? Both Edinburgh and Glasgow have strong historical links with Jamaica.

This association went from ordinary houses in Edinburgh to grand landmarks such as the Necropolis and the Gallery of Modern Art in Glasgow.

Dr Geoffrey Palmer, who first came to Scotland in 1965, has served on the Executive of Edinburgh and Lothian Racial Equality Councils for over twenty years and believe that better knowledge of the historical links between Britain and the Caribbean will improve race relations and increase harmony.

Thursday 23 August, 6pm-8pm, in the Persian Tent at St John's (Venue 127). Free ticketed. Reserve tickets here or at the venue box office. (This talk was alos given on 9 August.)
