The postwar government of South Africa implemented wide-ranging racial segregation laws, beginning the open policy of apartheid. During that era, the British government faced an uneasy dilemma: while repudiating apartheid laws, it maintained an ambiguous stance towards the South African government. Highlighting the connection between domestic anti-racism struggles and the struggle in South Africa, Elizabeth Williams shows how black Britons identified and expressed solidarity with black South Africans during the apartheid years.
