Black Girls in Search of God
George Bernard Shaw 's Black Girl searched for God in vain. The four black girls in tonight's programme came to this country bringing their own religions with them. To many people in this country the beliefs and practices of these girls appear foreign and inexplicable. The effect on the girls is to produce in their own lives a conflict of loyalties. The more they keep up with their English friends the further they move from their parents.
PREBHSHARAN is a Sikh. She lives in the close-knit Sikh community at Southall-but also, through school, the teenage world of music, and mini-skirts.
VIJAY is Hindu, a career girl who works in community relations. Her job is to mix with people of all races and religions, but she still expects to marry a good Hindu, of the right family and the right caste.
REHANA is Muslim. Muslim women traditionally are kept in purdah. But Rehana runs, in Coventry, a club designed to bring Asian girls out of the confines of their homes. ELAINE lives in Smethwick. She is a Jamaican, but racial problems hardly touch her life. She is a Pentecostal Christian, and her time is fully occupied praying, and singing, and evangelising door-to-door.
All four girls, and many thousands like them in this country, are deciding what to accept and what to reject in our society - and working out their own morality.
