The UK is grappling with big questions about belonging, equality, and the legacies of Empire and Colonialism. We’ve been here before. Embracing a broader history that encompasses all British people, ‘The Shoulders We Stand On’ is fundamental to a better understanding of the past and gives many more people who fought for our future a voice in the present. Have you heard of the Indian Workers’ Association? The Grunwick Strike? The Brixton Black Women’s Group? The Battle of Brick Lane? If the answer is no, you’re not alone. This title tells the stories of ten remarkable movements, campaigns and organisations led by Black and Brown people across Britain from the sixties to the eighties that fought against racism and capitalism and impacted the way we live now.
