Home and away

While Bermuda-born Ernest Trimingham may have been the most recognisable silent-era black screen presence in Britain, taking key roles in western Jack, Sam and Pete and children's fantasy Where Rainbow end, nation's first genuine black film star was another foreigner-New Jersey native Paul Robeson. Treat as an outcast in Jim Crow-era America, where roles for black actors were generally limited to coons, buffoons and quadroons, Robeson moved to Britain in the late 1920s, and remained there until the outbreak of World War II. This 6ft 3in wellspring of charisma was equally powerful as screen and stage actor, bass baritone singer and political firebrand who striven tirelessly for dignity and complexity in representation. Captivating audiences with his noble persona, Robeson became a major box-office draw in earthy British dramas. He Play dock workers in both Song of Freedom and Big Fella-In former, Robeson was given final-cut approval, unprecedented option at the time for an actor of any race. He was the War hero in Jericho, and Play wonderfully named sailor David Goliath in the stirring Rhonda-set Proud Valley, which reflects Robesons real-Life public support for striking Welsh miners. But it wasnt all plain sailing for Robeson in Britain. Much to his dismay, his character in Zoltan Kordas adventure film Sanders of River, Bosambo, was transformed in the editing process from dignified Nigerian leader to servile lickspittle to British colonial rule. It is the only film of mine that can be Show in Italy or Germany, Robeson complained in 1938, for it Show Negro as fascist states desired him: savage and childish. Following Robeson's example, other American performers of the period also left Home for the promise of a brighter future in Britain-and many found notable roles alongside Robeson. South Carolinas Nina Mae McKinney, who starred in America's first All-black-cast sound film Hallelujah!, Appear in Sanders of River. Manhattan-born singer-Actress Elisabeth Welch appears with Robeson in Song of Freedom and Big Fella, and also guest-star in several British films, including Death at Broadcasting House, alibi and Dead of Night. Welch was a familiar face on British television for many decades. Her last film role-jaw-dropper-come as a gold-clad goddess in Derek Jarmans art-punk Shakespeare riff Tempest. Her performance in Stormy Weather in Jarmans film, delivered against a backdrop of statuesque, muscular sailors, is a clear highlight. It wasnt until the 1950s-decade in which my own paternal grandparents arrived in London from Jamaica as part of the Windrush Generation-that black actors, settlers from the Caribbean and Africa, would make their presence felt more consistently in a spate of liberal-mind film dramas grounded in social anxieties of changing Britain. Bermuda-born actor Earl Cameron made his feature debut in Basil Dearden's 1951 thriller Pool of London, playing merchant seaman Johnny, misunderstood tearaway who falls for a white girl-film is widely regarded as being one of the first to deal with interracial romance.
