Abstract:

"In this cultural analysis of Black experience in Britain, Gloria Gordon uses her personal experience or the racial confusion with which she lived until she engaged with what it means to be black instead of avoiding and denying it. Her research takes her back in time to a shared history of slavery and colonisation with the white British; outwards to her experiences in white British society; and inwards to explore the psychological costs of her long silence." "This book is valuable for understanding black and white relationships across the world - a vital dimension of global social process. It is essential reading for teachers, educators and policy makers, teacher trainers, parents and everyone - black and white - who wants to understand how social inequality is maintained. And it is especially timely in the year marking the 200th anniversary of the legal abolition of the slave trade."--Jacket.
