Shoulders We Stand On

How Black and Brown people fought for change in the United Kingdom

«This is one of the most important books I've ever read . . . A powerful reminder of Britain's pervasive race problems, but more importantly, of the indefatigable courage of this country's Black and Asian communities. Dhillon's storytelling is equal parts witty, heartbreaking and inspiring . . . this history matters and should never, ever, be forgotten

«This is one of the most important books I've ever read . . .

Dhillon's storytelling is equal parts witty, heartbreaking and inspiring . . . this history matters and should never, ever, be forgotten

Dr Priya Atwal, author of Royals and Rebels

«The book is basically a compendium of gold nuggets for anyone interested in the fight for racial equality in Britain

Tony Warner, founder of Black History Walks

«This book is an eye opener of many histories that have been overlooked and a much needed book to understand the struggles our communities have fought for. I loved every page and will be ensuring that it on my reading lists for communities and educational groups I work with.»

Kiran Sahota, Believe in Me CIC

«An unapologetic, original voice which keeps you turning the page, Dhillon uncovers underexplored corners of the UK's past to understand the present and make a rallying cry for a better tomorrow.»

Lucy Fulford, author of The Exiled

«Leaves the reader with a renewed sense of gratitude for all those communities who endured and rose to fight for Black and Brown people's rights in post-war Britain. Their fight for equal rights established the groundwork for a more equal future . . .»

Rav Singh, founder of A little History of the Sikhs

«A vital contribution to our culture . . . This is beautiful storytelling, Dhillon shines a light into our recent histories - this book is alert with ideas as well as facts.»

Mona Arshi, author of Somebody Loves You

«A 'must have' for all bookshops, college and university libraries and for local community organisations . . . It comes at a time when the right to protest against forms of state racism is being criminalised, as well as being threatened with removal from statute by the social control agencies of that very state. [The Shoulders We Stand On] is written in an accessible style and language, humorous, when necessary, but always on point

Winston Trew, author of BLACK FOR A CAUSE

«This is a bold and radical book . . . It's superbly written and essential reading for activists, writers, scholars and those who want to understand the defining issues of race and class in the UK.»

Sheela Banerjee, author of WHAT'S IN A NAME?

«This book highlights the powerful role of collective action in changing the course of history. Ranging from Brixton to Bristol. Bradford to Southall, it surveys the forces and figures that forged a tumultuous period of Britain's history - and tells the stories of people who drew on enormous reserves of bravery and determination to forge social change

History Revealed

«A timely reminder that we had our very own Civil rights struggle right here, in Britain - a prolonged and sometimes bloody campaign . . . part of a long history of anti-racist activism that continues to this day

Stella Dadzie, author of THE HEART OF THE RACE
