What you need to know before your trail

The Good Immigrant explores why immigrants come to the UK, why they stay and what it means to be ‘other’ in a country that doesn’t seem to want you, doesn’t truly accept you – however many generations you’ve been here – but still needs you for its diversity monitoring forms.

Travel Guide

Things for all British people to think about:

How does it feel to have words from your native language misused, misappropriated and used aggressively towards you?

How does it feel to hear a child of colour say in a classroom that stories can only be about white people?

How does it feel to go ‘home’ to India when your home is really London?

What is it like to feel you always have to be an ambassador for your race?

How does it feel to always tick ‘Other’?
