BLM UK-‘We were taken advantage of. That is what hurt’

From the BBC

When Neville Howard arrived in the UK as part of the Windrush generation in 1947 it was a different world.

The 92-year-old – well-known around Cardiff for his singing – remembered reading “no blacks, no Irish” signs and how he “just had to learn to live with” racism.

Mr Howard said: “All of us over here with colour were taken advantage of.

“And that is the thing that has hurt me.”
