If you go to @GlamArchives, there's a wealth of information about the 1919 race riots in #Newport, #Cardiff and #Barry. Loads, and loads, and loads.

We visited recently to learn our history for ourselves. Here's a piece about the #aftermath of the #1919RaceRiots in #Newport
It reads "#NEWPORT RIOT SEQUEL COLOURED MAN WHO SIDED WITH WHITES

A further echo of the disturbances at Newport was heard at the local police court on Friday, when 24 coloured men+7 white men were brought up on various charges, including unlawful assembling and rioting
in George Street, #CommericalRoad+#RuperraStreet and assaulting police constable Nancarrow and various other people. One of the coloured defendants had fought with the Monmouthshire regiment in the war

2. As @renireni pointed out in Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race:

"Riots always seem to kick off in the summer." ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ
