Black African and Black Caribbean communities research guide

Some of Sheffield’s African and Caribbean communities have lived in the UK since the 18th century. The 1950s and 1960s saw large scale immigration, encouraged to cover the shortfall in labour following the Second World War. Many immigrants, including those from the Black African community settled in industrial cities, including Sheffield.
