At key moments in the British working class struggle for rights and freedom black leaders have emerged. This pamphlet is an introduction to that hidden but unbroken thread running through our history. Spanning the centuries from the 1750s to the 1970s, Hassan Mahamdallie brings to life six of these inspiring figures, from Olaudah Equiano and the fight against slavery to Jayaben Desai and the trade union struggles of multicultural Britain.
