Owusu, K. (2000) (Ed.) BLACK BRITISH CULTURE & SOCIETY London: Routledge

I cannot praise this collection of works enough. It simply is a fantastic, enlightening and interesting compendium to understanding Black perspectives in sociology, culture and generally the state that we're in. It covers just about everything that a good reader should, from the arts through to politics and is well worth investing in to gain a valuable insight to the terror of racism and the wonders of resistance.

From the outset of the book, where the racialisation of immigration is discussed, through to the analysis of Frank Bruno and Linford Christie, you begin to gain an understanding of how Black people are conditioned into a set of values and beliefs that they do not wholly own. On top of this, the analysis of contemporary art, contributions to British society and other topics provide an all round winner.

It is worth investing in as a reader to keep beside you when discussing practically any element of youth work
