SECOND ANNUAL CARIBBEAN CARNIVAL IN LONDON

SECOND ANNUAL CARIBBEAN CARNIVAL IN LONDON

The audience at the second carnival. The first carnival was organised by and for the black community in London and held indoors in 1959. A precursor to today's annual Notting Hill Carnival in London, it was initiated by Claudia Jones, who published and edited 'The West Indian Gazette'. She organised six carnivals and did much to boost the morale of the growing West Indian community in the country before her untimely death on 25th December,1964. Copyright held by donor.
