Speaking at an online meeting of rail workers in September, Janine Booth tells the story of the period after the end of the Second World War when black people came to Britain but met opposition from some white workers, until the 'colour bar' was defeated in 1966.
Janine explains the need for, and the content of, the Labour Party Autism and Neurodiversity Manifesto.
Janine chats with Pippa from Five Leaves about writing, politics, motivation, lockdown, poetry and much more. Warning: may contain poetry and book extracts!
