From Diane Abbott’s lifelong anti-racist activism to Neil Kinnock’s efforts to block black sections within the party, Labour has a polarised past when it comes to its relationship with Britain’s BAME communities. Now, up against the normalisation of far-right politics by the British establishment, and the need to reconcile the differences between sections of its electoral coalition who have vastly different attitudes towards immigration, can Labour win power on a platform of progressive economic policy and radical anti-racism?
