The Arms of Britannia

The Arms of Britannia

Description

The powerful and inspirational second part of actress and television presenter Floella Benjamin's autobiography which covers her teenage years in 1960s Britain.

Four years after arriving in England from Trinidad, Floella has started to make a life for herself in the face of prejudice and discrimination. Being a black teenager in 1960s Britain isn't easy but she overcomes adversity, faces up to a broken friendship and, in her first job, grasps the opportunity to change people's perceptions. And, when a life-changing moment arrives in the shape of an audition for the musical Hair, she instinctively releases the performer within her. It's time to show her worth - to show the world who she really is. Brave, funny and wise, with issues of race and discrimination handled sensitively and often with humour, Floella Benjamin's extraordinary story comes to an inspiring conclusion in the second part of her autobiography, and has a powerful message for teenagers today.
