This chapter looks at the racialising of Englishness. This is explicitly expressed in the Notting Hill riots, which led to the re-alignments of identity among the Caribbean migrants and indigenous English in London. It shows that these riots framed complex re-formations of national identity in metropolitan London. The chapter also proposes alternatives where English and American racial discourse and performance shaped regional England during the 1950s and 1960s.
