A profile on families of African descent who've lived in the United Kingdom since the early 19th century and before the great migrations of the 1950s and 1960s. The specific family profiled -- the Abrews -- have lived in Scotland since the late 1800s and worked in Vaudeville, theatre, and later, in film throughout Europe ahere they faced racial discrimination and eroticization as performers for primarily white audiences.
