How Beyond a Boundary broke down the barriers of race, class and empire

By Selma James – for In The Diaspora – Stabroek News – Sunday April 8, 2013

Fifty years ago, after a March as cold as the one just gone, my husband CLR James’s semi-autobiographical  Beyond a Boundary appeared as the cricket season opened.
