Memoirs of a Black Englishman


Paul Stephenson OBE is one of the leading black civil rights activists of his generation. It was in Bristol in 1963 that Paul and the black community took on the Bristol Omnibus Company that was refusing to employ black workers.

The Bristol Bus Boycott was the start of a lifetime dedicated to challenging prejudice at all levels in society and improving opportunities for young black people particularly through sport, music and education.

This book tells the story of Paul’s life of campaigning and how he has worked closely with many black role models to achieve his aims, including Muhammad Ali.
