Abstract

Henry Redhead Yorke, a man of African/British heritage from the West Indies, involved himself in a wide variety of political movements, occasionally switching sides and ideologies but never being a moderate. At the peak of his career he was the most revolutionary radical in Britain. Goodrich examines Yorke’s changing ideas through his speeches and writing, presenting a compelling tale of race, identity and belonging during a crucial time in political history.
