Ep. 2 The People's History of Alfie Pierce

Alfie Pierce, the former namesake of our beloved campus pub, is a Queen’s legend, yet few really know the true story behind his life. This episode of the People’s History Podcast brings Alfie’s story to life detailing the trials and barriers he faced as a person of colour on Queen’s campus and exposing the racist underpinnings that led to Alfie’s role as ‘Team Mascot’, underpinnings that have an impact on his legacy today.
