― Angela Davis

@hdacardiff @BBCRadioCymru 10. We didn't find many resources that looked @ the experience of #lascars in #Cardiff ⛵️ but we found this one.

This piece is called "1919, 1969 and Memories of Malay🇲🇾 Cosmopolitanism"

It discusses the Malay/lascar boarding house in #Tigerbay

@hdacardiff @BBCRadioCymru @newmandala 11. Next up: some history on #Muslims and #Islam in #Wales. Published by @OnReligionMag and written by @AbdulAzim [based at @IslamUKCentre], this piece explores the unique heritage of Muslims in Wales

@UkNatArchives 14. Sugar and Slate is a memoir by Welsh-Guyanese writer Charlotte Williams.

Her work deeply interrogates themes relating to race, identity and multiculturalism in Wales. This book discusses 1919 and its effects on the world in a way that no other book does.

Read it!
@UkNatArchives 15. Tiger Bay Story was written by the recently deceased social historian Neil Sinclair. Born and raised in Butetown, Neil's family were attacked during the #Cardiff race riots. He discusses it in this book.

17. The South Wales🇬🇧 Race Riots of 1919 by @NeilevansEvans is published in @Llafur, the Welsh🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 people's history society journal📕. It's fantastic. Read it here:


#Hanes #HanesCymraeg #History #Caerdydd #CardiffRaceRiots1919
18. And, of course, the riveting follow up to the above outlining that the devil is *really* in the detail. @NeilevansEvans unearths fascinating history to illustrate the minutiae of the riots and what doesn't add up b/w the sources.
19. It's called The South Wales🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿Race Riots of 1919: a documentary postscript and it's published in @Llafur in Volume 3, Number 4. It's accessible here llafur.org/journal/volume…

@Llafur 20. Gaynor Legall of @TigerBayWorld has written this mind-blowing blogpost on #CardiffRaceRiots1919 on @projectarts' blog, here it is: uboatproject.wales/2019/06/20/car…

#Wales #Hanes
@Llafur @TigerBayWorld @projectarts @LlongauUBoat @kylelegall 21. This is a news article about this project where we live tweeted the #RaceRiots of 1919 in #Cardiff, #Barry and #Newport.

@Llafur @TigerBayWorld @projectarts @LlongauUBoat @kylelegall 22. 1919 might have been 100 years ago, but that doesn't mean that all the resources we came across were written.

Far from it. Check out this video from 48:00 onwards called "Mixed Britannia" by the BBC

23. "Butetown is my home" is a film made by a filmmaker called Darryn February. We genuinely didn't expect to stumble across this, but we found it on youtube. It interviews our community elders, Keith Murrell and Nicky Delgado 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

#Cardiff #Wales
24. Our elders talk honestly and candidly about heritage, race, and, importantly, cultural memory. What is cultural memory? Was 1919 ever forgotten? What about the other riots? Who was involved?

Darryn's film reveals all📽️📽️📽️
25. This is a clip of a film📽️ made by @Channel4 w/ Colin Prescod of @IRR_News. We came across this film at @NTWtweets "Wild Scenes at Tiger Bay" when Gaynor Legall from @TigerBayWorld showed it to us. It is called 'Tiger Bay is My Home'

26. This film📽️ has Gaynor interviewing community elders about #CardiffRaceRiots1919🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿, and it's such a rare gem to have found💎
