1. Here's what's happened on the first day of the #CardiffRaceRiots:

Wednesday 11th June 1919 was the hottest day of the year☀️. At 10pm 🕙 a group of people in vehicle on #EastCanalWharf near #CustomHouseStreet.
2. The vehicle had a number of people in there. There were men of colour and their white wives. It got a considerable amount of attention from a group of white men on the street when it reached Cahanal Parade Bridge. A police constable arrived at the scene

3. And then, another break of coloured men and their wives arrived in #Cardiff Central. Sometime during this commotion, some of the people exited the vehicles on #CanalParadeBridge in #CardiffCentral to the extremely hostile crowd.

#DidYouKnow that the word Cambria comes from #Latin🇮🇹? It's a romanised version of the word #Cymru that was used by the Romans

Due to hostility, ethnic minority people were more likely to settle in close-knit communities around the Cardiff dock area. The docks were known as ‘lawless’ areas, where hostels for foreign sailors were tolerated alongside brothels and gambling holes.
Racial prejudice and hostility pushed ethnic minority communities into these spaces, with certain parts of Cardiff considered dangerous no-go zones by ethnic minority communities.
This created segregated living conditions, which further built tension between people and strengthened the split throughout Cardiff. The consequences that this tension caused can be seen through the outbreak of the #CardiffRaceRiots1919. Does this still hold a legacy to this day?
