Black and white pictures in London’s National Portrait Gallery depict the closeness and divisions between black and white individuals and communities living in Britain prior to Windrush. With humour, sensitivity and wit the  40+ images depict a champion boxer, slave boy, Nigerian tribesmen outside Parliament and refinement of a female African captive turned British aristo under the aegis of Queen Victoria. Previously written out of history surprising characters put in unexpected appearances in places where you would least expect to see them. Open your eyes and mind.
