The Heart of the Race is a powerful record of life as a black woman in Britain: grandmothers drawn to the promise of the "mother country" in the 1950s talk of a different reality; young girls describe how their aspirations at school were largely ignored; working women tell of their commitments to families, jobs, communities. First published in 1985, this new edition includes a new introduction by Lola Okolosie and a new interview with the authors, conducted by Heidi Mirza, on the impact and relevance of their book today.
