Description

On 23 April 1979, a whole community took to the streets to protest at the invasion of its town by the fascists.

What were the struggles and experiences of the people of Southall – in work, housing, schools and in their community – that had prepared the way for such a show of common purpose? CARF reveals a pattern of racism and resistance from the 1950s to the 1980s.
