The untold story of race relations in the UK – Divided by Race, United in War and Peace

Divided by Race, United in War and Peace is a short documentary film about race relations in Britain during and after the Second World War. At its core are the testimonies of 14 surviving veterans, particularly those West Indian and African young men and women who volunteered to join the war effort and soon afterwards returned to live in Britain. They risked their lives to serve under the Union Jack in times of war, then faced a second battle – their right to remain under that flag, as British citizens. Until now their stories have not been properly heard. Nor has the contribution they made been fully recognised, both in helping win the war but also changing the face of British society. This film, brought to you by The-Latest.Com, seeks to both redress that balance and explore the sometimes painful evolution of a multi-cultural society.
