Seaside Resorts: Part Two - Bridlington and Filey

Our guest writer Audrey Dewjee has demonstrated through entertainers, visitors, local characters and wonderful pictures that two of the region’s most popular seaside resorts have been regularly frequented by people of African descent.

Hull Daily Mail's Flashback series
Yesterday blog post focuses on photographs we have come across in the Hull Daily Mail Flashback series that document people of African descent in the region through the decades. Some of them are of people who have engaged with our project such as David Gambe, Clive Sullivan and Alex Dyer while other pictures we would love to know more about.

Dusé Mohamed Ali
We're proud to learn that the African Stories project was the inspiration for the naming of Dusé Mohamed Ali as one of the 100 people honoured in Hull in the Lord Mayor's Centenary plaque scheme. This will honour people who have made an impact within their field locally, nationally and internationally.
