Can anyone advise? I told her that I knew nothing, but doubted that there
was any legislation either banning Black workers or making them employable.

Dear Ms. Sherwood,
After months of searching, I have been advised to contact you personally for
advice as the preeminent expert in Black Brit (recent) history.
I am a Black British filmmaker researching my feature & would be grateful
for your assistance.
I've been trying for months to confirm a 4-digit date, prior to which White
store owners deemed it offensive to White shoppers that Blacks handle goods.
The questions are:
1. when were Black Brits first permitted to 'visibly' work in Oxford St,
London shops - 197?
2. was legislation introduced (specifically) to address this & is it
named/listed under the Race Relations Act of 1976?
I would be so grateful if you could help or suggest experts in 'Black
British Civil Rights - from 1960 to present day' that I can contact for
Thank you in advance.
