This issue emerged out for a grant from the British Council to explore the multicultural vibrancy in Britain today. We thank them for believing in Gallerie’s ongoing engagement with issues of cultural diversity and its effort in blurring ethnic divides wherever in the world they exist. We are deeply grateful for their support and collaboration in making this issue possible. Britain, like the United States, has long been a nation where settlers came in droves to make it their home. Celts, Romans, the Angles, Saxons and Jutes, Danes and Vikings, the Jewish during the Cromwellian 1600s, besides of course, the more recent influx of Pakistanis, Bangladeshis, Indians, East Europeans, the Caribbean-Africans and a sizable population of Chinese.
