Janet Alder is one of five children of Nigerian descent who grew up in an Avenues children’s home in Hull. She describes her experiences in her local area throughout the 1960s, 70s and 80s. Janet reflects on how she feels that a limited exposure to difference results in the narrowing of people’s views of the world around them. She gives a powerful insight into how she has been affected by the death of her brother Christopher Alder, eighteen years ago.
