Race, Education, and Immigration Policy: Has Race Relations in Britain Changed Since the 1950s Black Commonwealth Immigration to Britain? A Cross Cultural Study relating to Race, Class and gender Inequality in Britain and the U.S.A.
by Frances Benskin

In 1948, the ship Empire Windrush brought 500 passengers from Jamaica wishing to start a new life in the United Kingdom.

The immigrants met with varying fates in their adopted country. As to be expected, apprehension was rampant from the sides of both the new arrivals and their host country, resulting in episodes of racial discrimination manifested in schools, gainful employment, career advancement, social movement, and housing.

Current wisdom teaches that advancing equality in all fields of opportunity is advantageous both to nation and economy, and much study and programs have been created to effect such vision.

Race, Education, and Immigration Policy by Dr. Frances Benskin is one such attempt, and it adds in scope to a previous work on the same subject.
