All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. In Britain today there is no official colour bar, but there is prejudice and discrimination.
The Rev. James Maitland, Warden of Community House, Glasgow, discusses this problem with Anthony H. Richmond, sociologist and writer on race relations, Lionel Derban, a medical student from the Gold Coast, and the Rev. Scott Hutchison, Chaplain to overseas students.
