Like Linton Kwesi Johnson, this generation of writers began through poetry and theatre to express their frustrations about being born and brought up, but not accepted in Britain. A fresh riot in Notting Hill, this time at the 1976 Carnival, provided another major watershed in the development of black British identity, and the search backwards, through Rastafarianism and other separatists ideas, for a comfort zone. A vibrant music and poetry scene evolved around these explorations, focusing on the sometimes bitter life experiences of Black Britons at the hand of the police (the 'Babylon'). The venue for these explorations were increasingly the burgeoning community centres springing up everywhere, out of which developed community writing programmes such as South London based Black Ink.
