This eBook commemorates the historic opening of Bernie Grant MP’s Parliamentary Black Caucus meeting of Black and Asian politicians and academics. It was convened with The Centre for Research in Ethnic Relations (CRER), at the University of Warwick, Coventry, and attended by the US Congressional Black Caucus and civil rights organisations, 1st and 2nd, 1989.
This paper includes notes for a seminar ‘Focusing on the research needs of black people in public life’.
The questions raised include:
- How to advance and consolidate progress already made in equal opportunities and justice?
- What strategies are necessary to meet the demands of the disadvantaged?
- How do we enhance the capacity for black people to enhance their capacity to define, articulate, and otherwise pursue their interests?
