  • Baron Baker and Black self defence groups
  • Notting Hill ‘riots’ of 1958
  • Black economic self empowerment
  • Black British Civil rights
  • Claudia Jones and the Black media
  • The Mangrove 9
  • Housing racism and West Indian community solutions
  • The White Australia policy
  • Caribbean food, blues/shebeens and music
  • Police brutality before Black Lives Matter

This illustrated talk will take you through the book, pointing out the exciting new areas for study, the resources and additional references as well as intriguing histories outside the scope of GCSE.
