The second of six histories of the African and Caribbean presence, told by those who lived through the experiences and events that shaped black Britain.
Rise of Racism. In 1919, white mobs roamed the streets of Liverpool and attacked black people. First World War volunteer Ernest Marke says: 'After the war was over and they were demobilised, the white soldiers seemed to forget that the black man was also in the navy and the army.' This programme looks at the violence of 1919, the colour bar and Notting Hill riots of the 1950s, and the growth of 'institutionalised racism'.
All these events had a direct impact on the lives of black people. So did their relationship with the police and the use of the 'sus' law.
