As many women as men immigrated to the UK from the Caribbean, and three-quarters of these women were single. The Heart of the Race recovers the women's historical agency, situating it in relation to a long tradition of resistance to enslavement. Their participation in the UK labour market, overcoming racist obstacles, was a component of Britain's postwar economic recovery.
