Book Description

A Sense ofBelongingis a personal account of a British born woman of Jamaican descent who migrated from England to Jamaica, her parents' homeland, and found it to be a place which she can truly call home. She tells of her 'Jamaican' childhood in England, her discontent with the subtle forms of racism in the British education system, the search for her identity, her wrestles with the decision to move from England to Jamaica, and of the challenges she faced to begin her new life in Jamaica with its traditions and culture that she was raised to honour and respect. It gives some insight into why one British born Jamaican identifies with the island of Jamaica and questions whether the British born person of Jamaican or other West Indian descent will ever be truly accepted as Black and British in the UK
