Black and White on the Buses
While the civil rights marches and bus boycotts took place in the Southern States of the USA here in Bristol in 1963 black workers had to fight their own campaign for equal rights to employment on the city's buses. This is the story of a small group of black workers whose fights for their rights, in the face of the outright opposition, disinterest and misunderstanding of the bus company, the union, churches and the city council, was to make national headlines.
