Gloria Cameron, MBE

Gloria Cameron came to Britain from Jamaica as a young woman, endured the discrimination she met on arrival to bring up six children in a positive home with aspirations.

Educated in her place of birth and the UK she moved into community work where she gave her all, perhaps too much, when the giving was seen as taking and culminated in an extraordinary case where she was the accused. Without foundation the case collapsed within two days, dismissed! It should never have happened but the damage was done.

A woman who was appointed a JP, met with Princess Diana, and made TV appearances, went through the darkest days imaginable.

Her story is an historical account of Jamaicans coming to Britain, achieving success, and being brought down by ... who really knows?


“… a non-patronising, non-sentimental and certainly a non-pathological account of her experience as a Caribbean migrant mother living, surviving and bringing up six children in London.”   Dame Jocelyn Barrow OBE

“… great educational value for young people of Caribbean origin in the contemporary society, who have not had the opportunity to learn this history.”   Dr Elaine Arnold
