Walter Tull: His Life and Legacy
21st January 2019
Folkestone Museum is delighted to present an exhibition celebrating the life and legacy of Walter Tull. Born in Folkestone in 1888 to a British mother and Bajan father, Walter was one of the first black outfield footballers to play at the highest level, for Tottenham Hotspur, Northampton Town and Clapton.
To coincide with Armistice centenary commemorations in November and Black History Month in October 2018, 100 years after Walter’s death, Folkestone Museum will bring Walter’s story to a new generation.
This exhibition has been made possible by the generous loan of archival material from the Finlayson Family Archive, Action for Children (The Children’s Home and Orphanage), the National Army Museum, and Tottenham Hotspur, and with the kind assistance of Walter Tull’s biographer, Phil Vasili.
