The history of our coming to the United Kingdom in significant numbers began in the 1960s.
For many it was a trying time, poorly paid and with not many rental options, many were forced to share just one room on occasions. There were many stories of our community being stopped by the police for no other reason than driving an expensive looking car, or being attacked by certain groups because of their ethnicity. However, we should not take the view that this was an extremely wide spread problem in all areas of the UK.
There were those who stood up against such injustice and prejudice. Amongst them in particular were British women, many families of whom today are the proud parents of our fine mixed race citizens. Today, on the behalf of our community, we say thank you to those who treated us fairly and with respect.
