Black Union Jack

Hello and welcome to the site. This blog will be celebrating the contribution of black people from the Caribbean to the United Kingdom. It will be uplifting, inspirational and motivational and will focus on positive images of black life in Britain.

When I was growing up I used to hear the phrase ‘there ain’t no black in the Union Jack’ which was another way of saying that the UK will always be known as a white-only country but this site will turn that concept on its head and show just how much black Caribbean people have added to this nation over the course of hundreds of years.

I am black and British and I feel that it is important to know just how much my people have enriched this country in every area – sport, the arts, sciences, philosophy, health, politics etc etc.

It’s time to celebrate our blackness and our Britishness – it’s time to put some black in the Union Jack – enjoy!
