The Shoulders We Stand On: How Black and Brown people fought for change in the United Kingdom (Hardback)

£18.99
Awaiting publication

Synopsis

The United Kingdom is currently a hellscape for Black and Brown people. To be fair, things have never been great. Black and Brown people and allies alike, are asking ourselves a difficult question: what leads to real change?



Have you heard of the Indian Worker's Association, Asian Youth Movements, the Grunwick Strike, the Brixton Black Women's Group, the Bristol Bus Boycott or the Battle of Brick Lane? If the answer is no, you're not alone. This is history that has been deliberately kept from us. It's time to reclaim these vital moments and find out how we can learn from our own collective past.



A respected researcher and historian, Preeti Dhillon tells the stories of ten remarkable movements, campaigns and organisations led by Black and Brown people in from the sixties to the eighties that fought against racism and capitalism and impacted the way we live now.



The Shoulders We Stand On is a book of hope. Hope that together we can make a difference, that together we are powerful, and that we don't have to tackle this alone. There is a long and deep history of activism by Black and Brown people. Their stories can inspire all of us to make a difference just as they did.



We're not alone, we've been here before and this is the book we all need now.



Filled with inspiring stories Preeti Dhillon uncovers crucial moments from our history. If you loved Natives, Brit(ish), Small Axe or Pride, don't miss The Shoulders We Stand On.
