Black Britain

I borrowed a few books from the library to do with African and West Indian’s immigration and life in Britain. I am really looking forward to reading about this as throughout my schooling years I have never been taught anything about the experiences and events that happened during 1940-1970(even later than this date). Only receiving a brief outline from the older generations of my family years ago. The only black history I learnt about was from America, and even that was brief. It usually came up in October the one time of the year we were only taught about black history.

The books I will be reading are;
>Changing Britannia: Life experience with Britain edited by Roxy Harris and Sarah White
>Inside Babylon: The Caribbean diaspora in Britain edited by Winston James and Clive Harris
