Came across this film about West Indians in Britain during the Second World War.
It’s nice to think that West Indians were all united, and that Britain welcomed and accepted them.
History, however, tells us that was not all true. The British got a tad uncomfortable when suddenly all their colonial subjects started taking over the place.
One of the voices in the film is Una Marson. And although she seems quite content and dandy to be a West Indian living in London, her work as a writer and feminist was far from submissive.
On the contrary she was a leading voice in the fight for the equality of West Indians and women in Britain.
