Thesis

Black activists' perspectives on the issue of racism in Britain

The research identifies that previous RR Acts, which were supposed to tackle racism were passive, and that they also failed to take into account how a group of people experience and interprets their disadvantages in Britain. Therefore, why were these laws ineffective and why is anti-Black racism still prevalent? The research aims to critically assess the perspectives of Black activists who take different stances on why racism is prevalent and what are ways racism can be eradicated in Britain.
