Reviews
In an insightful autobiography, Barbara Blake Hannah, Britain's first black television journalist, recalls her time in Britain during the 1960s and her encounters with 'swinging London' and 'flower power'. Socialised from birth into a negative attitude towards her natural hair and beauty, she describes the process of 'growing out' of both her attitude towards her hair and that specifically black consciousness. Entertwined with her own story is the parallel tale of Mr Jones, providing insight into the life of a typical poor Jamaican immigrant.
