Black Ancestry | Irish and Africans of the Caribbean


Every family has a unique back story to bring to life. Ancestry talks exist to help African Caribbean people living in Britain and North America realise the stories of their ancestors.

In this masterclass, Paul discusses

· how did Africans and Irish people end up in the Caribbean
· when they arrived in the Caribbean
· the cultural legacy drawing on Paul’s findings when looking into the extent to which Irish people may have impacted Caribbean culture
· the economic status of Africans and Irish in the Caribbean during the period of enslavement.

The talk is suitable for you if

  • you’re new to exploring family history
  • you have some experience searching for your ancestors and want to know about other sources of information
  • you’ve started and you’re having problems furthering your search
  • you want to develop your knowledge and understanding of Black History.
