Libraries Ethnic minorities in our city

The growth of our city from the mid-18th century onwards went hand-in-hand with the arrival of people of many nationalities and ethnic groups.

This is a very brief overview of some sources of information on these migrations and the ethnic history of the city. The ethnic groups are generally identified by category, for example African-Caribbean or Asian.

If you can offer material that can be added to the collection, please email:
