This series of podcasts explores themes and highlights from the exhibition Black Greenwich Pensioners (1 Oct 2020 - 21 Feb 2021) at the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich. 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.
