Format: Paperback
This book attempted to describe to British white people what it was like to be black -- and a newcomer -- in Britain in the l970s. Stories written in simple terminology, no academic jargon. The book won the Martin Luther King Prize for l972 as the best book published in USA and UK helping race relations.
