Extract 3 of interview with Donald Hinds - oral history extract

Description:
When Donald Hinds came to London in 1955, his first job was as a bus conductor with London Transport. He worked on buses running from the Brixton garage. While working there Donald began writing for the West Indian Gazette. The newspaper had been founded in 1958 by Claudia Jones. It told stories relevant to the Black community in London that were often overlooked in the mainstream newspapers. In the 1960s, the paper published a lot about the struggle to achieve equal rights for Black people, and Donald met many people who influenced him in his career. Donald talks about those exciting times.
