The story of the extraordinary lives of Eric and Jessica Huntley, two black publishing poineers and activists whose legacy will continue to challenge and inspire every one who cares about equality and justice.

''In the telling of the story of struggles for Black community in 20th century Britain, the names of Eric and Jessica Huntley loom large.  They began as frontline fighters against colonialism and imperialism in their native Guyana, and translated that activism to  combating  racism and injustice when they moved to London in the 1950s.  Spiritually socialist and internationalist, they came to be celebrated by the communities from and for which they organised from their Ealing West London base, founding a major Black and Third World publishing house, Bogle L'Ouverture, as well as grounding numberless local Uk campaigns ast their Walter Rodney Community Bookshop.  This book describes their legacy for new generation scholars young and old, freedom fighters Black and White'' - COLIN PESCOD, Chair of the Institute of Race Relations
