Hero tells the amazing story of Ulric Cross, a West Indian lawyer who joined the Pan-African independence movements in the 1960s.

Ulric Cross lived in England from his RAF training in 1941 until 1957. He served as a navigator with the air force’s elite Pathfinders, who located and marked bombing targets with flares. After the war, he worked as a producer at the BBC’s Caribbean Service. He was then recruited by fellow Trinidadian George Padmore, one of the architects of Pan-Africanism, to travel to Ghana to help Kwame Nkrumah in his work to unite Africa’s emerging nations. During Cross’s 15 years in Africa, he served on Ghana’s Crown Council, was Attorney General in Cameroon, a High Court Judge in Tanzania and Dean of the Faculty of Law at the University of Dar Es Salaam.
