Black used to be used to describe people in Britain that have suffered colonialism and enslavement and continue to experience racism and diminished opportunities in society. Historically in the UK, the term Black has been used routinely in anti-racist campaigns starting in the 70s and at the height of 1980s Black activism as African, Arab, Asian and Caribbean communities had come to realise the importance of unity in common struggles against racism and under-representation and campaigned under the political term ‘Black’.
