This is the story of a ten-year-old migrant boy uprooted from a peasant community in the mountains of Clarendon, Jamaica, to join his parents in 1959 in post-war Camber well, South London. Published shortly after his death, it extends from his early childhood to the age of 26 when he completes his doctorate at Sussex University and takes up the post of a lecturer in politics at the University of Dar es Salaam at a time when Tanzania is at the forefront of the liberation struggle for southern Africa. Here, Harry describes a migrant child’s struggles to escape religious fundamentalism, traditionalism, and racism, which he attempts through the opportunities offered by education, and through his active participation in the emergent multi-cultural and fairer society characterized by post-imperial Britain.
