March 31st+The Abolition Of The Slave Trade

Not open for further replies.

Greetings to all at Southend.
You may or may not know that you will be meeting us, and us been Hull City, in the middle of our city's 'Bicentenary Of The Abolition Of The Slave Trade Act', celebrations.
In which, as I'm sure, due to much recent publicity, you will already be aware that, x Hull M.P William Wilberforce played a pivotal role in implementing.

And it's been agreed by Hull City Council, in recognition of this famous son of Hull's achievements, that as many people as possible should attend the match versus your good selves, with cosmetically darkened faces, as a show of solidarity for our distant cousins from the African continent, to whom we could never correct the wrongs that were inflicted upon them in bygone times.

Suggested substances to aid the effect of darkened skin on the 31st of March are ;
1) a gravy mix. dapped onto the face using cotton wool, or other suitable material.
2) boot polish. old fail safe. (see above for ways of implementation.)
3) charcoal/coal dust. pat it, or rub it on generously.

I'm sure the more creative of you may prefer to think of your own ways of finding that exotic look.
Whichever method you find the easiest to apply on the day.
Just remember, it's the making of the effort that counts the most.

The people of Hull eagerly await your participation in what promises to be, a very memorable occasion, and a great spectacle nationwide.

Thanks in advance for keeping the memory of William Wilberforce alive.

All the best for the rest of the season.
'The Good People Of Hull'.
