It seems barely credible now that IN 1963 The Bristol Bus Company would not employ black drivers or conductors.
In 1963, Paul and others led a boycott of Bristol buses in protest at the Bristol Bus Company’s official policy of refusing to employ black drivers and conductors.
The protest was based on the Montgomery Bus Boycott, a seminal event in the US civil rights movement. The fight was won but not without hardship and struggle. You can read the full story in this book published by Tangent.
Paul Stephenson………a true local hero.
