Prince Charles hails black immigrants' contribution to UK society

OHMYGOSSIP — Prince Charles has hailed the “remarkable contribution” black immigrants have made to the UK.
The 68-year-old royal has heaped praise on the community during a visit to a new Black Cultural Archives centre in Brixton, London, which is well known for being home to people of African and Caribbean descent.
He said: “We are very lucky that you have made that contribution, particularly if I may say so, during the first and Second World War.”
The new Black Cultural Archives centre documents the community’s contribution to the war efforts and Prince Charles said it is important to recognise the sacrifices of black immigrants.
He said, according to the Evening Standard newspaper: “At last, you have a centre such as this, which allows you to develop so many opportunities but also to bring the message to so many people in this country and elsewhere about the remarkable contribution made over so long, by people of African and Caribbean descent who have contributed so much to this country.
“When we think of how many people were involved in that war from all around Africa and the Caribbean, their legacy is a truly remarkable one and I am so glad that you are able to ensure that story is told properly.”
Meanwhile, Prince Charles said he expects the Black Cultural Archives – which strives to celebrate the history of people of African descent in Britain – will continue to grow in the coming years.
He reflected: “I’m sure it will grow and grow. In fact I can see a time come when even these premises will probably be too small.”
