From Hastings County to Africa:
Belleville's Sir Gilbert Parker
and British Imperialism in Africa
Within a rather short time span, Belleville's adopted son, Sir Gilbert Parker, would achieve what few before him had dared to dream... he went from teaching in a one-room schoolhouse in the backwoods of Hastings County to sitting in Britain's Parliament. This presentation will show how he influenced British imperialism in southern Africa and the parallels that existed between Africa and Canada in the early 20th century.
When: Tuesday, May 15, 2018, 7:30 pm
Where: Maranatha, 100 College Street West, Belleville, ample parking and level access from rear of building.
