African Stories in Hull & East Yorkshire Project Updates
On Tuesday, we featured the wonderful life-story of Laureen Sylvestre told by her daughter Cleo. Laureen was born on 19 February 1911 at 37 Peel Street in Hull. Although she was brought up in care, she had an exciting life in showbusiness. Her legacy has been continued by daughter Cleo Sylvestre and granddaughter Zoe Palmer, who have both had successful careers in the arts.
