In 1941 Ulric Cross, a young man from Trinidad, left his island home to seek his fortune. He survived the Second World War as the RAF’s most decorated West Indian airman, but then his life followed a very different course, leading him to become a central figure in the independence movements sweeping Africa in the ’50s and ’60s.

Hero is not just about Cross’s extraordinary life and journey but about the dynamic and transformative times in which he lived. It tells the untold story of those Caribbean professionals who helped to liberate Africa from colonialism, shining a light on an important chapter in Caribbean history, and on Caribbean identity itself.

The screening will be followed by a live onstage Q&A with director Frances-Anne Solomon, actor Nickolai Salcedo and Garry Stewart from Recognize Black Heritage & Culture.
