Born of Good Intentions: The Life and Times of Black Victorian Children in a Dr Barnardo’s Home  

This presentation looks at the life and times of Black Victorian Children who were taken in by Dr Barnardo’s, one of the first people to take in Black children during the Victorian era (1863).  

Why did they end up there? Where were their parents? What happened to the children? Each child is looked at and their life is discussed by historian and tour guide, Avril Nanton.
