Black Greenwich Pensioners Podcast

This series of podcasts explores themes and highlights from our exhibition Black Greenwich Pensioners. In each episode, Claire Kirk (Head of Learning, Interpretation and Collections at the Old Royal Naval College), speaks to maritime historian and Black history expert, S.I. Martin, who curated the exhibition. Conversations delve into the research behind the display and what this research tells us about the lives of Black mariners in London during the 18th and 19th centuries.
