London is the Place for Me

Black Britons, Citizenship and the Politics of Race

Kennetta Hammond Perry

Transgressing Boundaries: Studies in Black Politics and Black Communities

  • Rethinks traditional historical accounts about the significance of the Windrush generation that focus on the perspective of policy-makers.
  • Departs from previous scholarship by centering black Britons as political actors as they made claims to citizenship and challenged the state to guarantee their rights.
  • Situates race politics in twentieth century Britain within the context of empire and transnational race politics
