Scope: This material covers events and organisations in Southall, London Borough of Ealing, known as 'Little India' because of its large Indian population. It contains flyers, press releases, circular letters, leaflets and other ephemera from historically important organisations such as the Indian Workers' Association (Southall), the Indian Workers' Front and the Southall Youth Movement.

There are also collections on issues such as the bussing of non-white schoolchildren in Ealing to schools with fewer non-white pupils; trade unionism, particularly among female cleaning staff at Heathrow airport; community self-defence against fascist activity in the area and the death of anti-fascist activist Blair Peach at the hands of the police during a National Front rally in Southall in 1979.
