From the editorial “ This special issue comprises papers from the conference ‘British Art In A Century of Immigration’ which was organised by Lynda Checketts in Norwich on 15-16 March 1991. To coincide with the conference, Checketts also organised an exhibition, curated by Eddie Chambers, History and Identity, representing a selection of contemporary young black artists. The essays trace the trajectory and comment on the implications of various migrations in recent British history: those migrations that followed the Jewish pogroms and rise of fascism in Northern and Eastern Europe during the early decades of the 20th Century; and the post - 1945 migration of peoples from African, Caribbean and Asian countries that had been under British colonial rule.”
