Welsh historian Neil Sinclair introduced Linda's talk on Dec. 8 in the swank cafe at Octavo Books in Cardiff, Wales. Sinclair has written about the history of this area, Tiger Bay, which once played host to seamen from around the world. Many of them were men of color who settled in this friendly, unusually diverse corner of Wales. Traces of that history are all but lost, sadly. Urban renewal has made the docks a center of restaurants and bars.
