. The Mackies Men by UNA WOODS
Read by Brenda Winter
'I'm carrying my brown leather music-case, flat and new, the thin sheets of music delicately inside. White, black notes. No one understood that the black notes made music up and down on the black lines. Not the Mackies men, who are now part of the music. Music and Mackies men.'

Racism is an emotive, complex and many-faceted issue. Tonight reporter Nakib Narat investigates its causes. Is racism a product of history or biology and what has religion contributed to racial prejudice and division? In the light of his discoveries, Hope Sealy considers possible routes to better race relations in this country.
Listeners are invited to put comments and questions to studio guests or to speak confidentially to Dev Sharma and John Witmore , Directors of the Commission for Racial Equality.
