"The term African-British is the name now used to describe the community previously mislabelled as Afro-Caribbean, Black British, UK Black, Coloured, Black Other and Black. It embraces all British nationals with antecedents originating directly from Africa or indirectly via African diasporic communities, such as those in the Caribbean and South America".
(Quote from The Ligali Organisation)

"The term ‘Black’ is used as a generic term in reference to all communities facing racism due to the colour of their skin. We are aware of the popular usage of the term as reference to African-Caribbean communities and the use of the term by political activists, which embraces Asian and African-Caribbean communities. We value cultural diversity and the richness of these communities. Therefore, we seek to be inclusive by making reference to Asian, African, Caribbean and other communities as far as possible. The issue of the importance of unity in the struggle against racism and for racial equality cannot be understated. We believe it is healthy for our movements to debate terminology, so that unity can be created".
