Winner of the Martin Luther King Memorial Prize 1985. This book records what life is like for the Black women in Britain: grandmothers drawn to the promise of the ‘mother country’ in the 1950s talk of a different reality; young girls describe how their aspirations at school are largely ignored; working women tell of their commitments to families, jobs, communities. Along with stories of struggles here is Black women’s celebration of their culture and their struggle to create a new social order in this country
