The Bogle-L'Ouverture bookshop, opened by the Huntleys in Ealing in 1975, was one of the first Black bookshops in the UK, renamed as the Walter Rodney Bookshop following Rodney's assassination in 1980, and was a central hub for community action and creativity.
As one of the legacies, of the ground-breaking exhibition and touring programme, launched online in June 2018, the No Colour Bar legacy book contains artist profiles and reproductions of some of the key artworks, documenting its narratives and responses. With thought pieces by co-curators, Katherine Pearce, Makeda Coaston and Michael McMillan, the publication also has further important contributions from respected cultural leaders and writers, including Eddie Chambers, Hamja Ashan, Margaret Andrews, Margaret Busby and Colin Prescod.
"The book is not just about art — it tells a political story of struggles against racism waged by activist artists. No Colour Bar: Black British Art in Action 1960-1990 is a weighty tome that would look good on any coffee table and possesses both style and content."
