Black History Month 2021

On the final week of Black History Month we acknowledge as many as 600,000 African troops who served and fought for Britain during World War’s I & II. As quoted in Foreign policy:

‘By the end of World War II, Eusebio Mbiuki [pictured] had faced deadly combat in the jungles of Burma and survived fearful ocean crossings stalked by submarines.’

Jaston Khosa, a Zambian in his late 90s and a veteran of Britain’s colonial military, on Nov. 27, 2018. Earlier that day, he spoke with Britain’s Prince Harry at a veterans meet-and-greet to coincide with Armistice Day commemorations, before returning to his home in a shantytown on the edge of the capital, Lusaka.

At the time this photo was published in 2019, Eusebio was 100 years old.
