FROM WHERE I STANDProduct no.: HP004
Published in 1987, this part biography part social commentary contains all the elements of the life story of any West Indian in Britain.
West Indians came with innocent dreams and expectations of being treated as full citizens of their ‘Motherland’ – a country for which they had fought in the Second World War. But they were quickly and starkly disillusioned and shocked by white racist rejection and cruelty.
Roy Sawh – civil rights activist and public speaker – looks back over his three decades in Britain since his arrival in the 1950s.
