Ebony on the road was a six part series presented by Brinsley Forde Aminatta Forna and Martin Shaw, in which Ebony goes out on the road to meet Britain’s Afro-Caribbean communities. This one takes us back to Butown, Cardiff in 1984 and features performances by Welsh bands Bissmillah and Denym as well as interviews with community leaders including Gaynor Legall.
Our favourite segment is the highlight on Mount Stuart Primary School. It features Wales’ First Black Headteacher and Champion of Multiculturalism, Betty Campbell. Born into a working class family in Butetown in 1934, Betty overcame setbacks and racism and made history putting Black culture on her Cardiff curriculum.
