Racial unrest in London. The Notting Hill race riots were a series of racially motivated riots that took place in London, England, over several nights in late August and early September 1958. The end of World War II had seen a marked increase in Caribbean migrants to Britain. By the 1950s white working-class "Teddy Boys" were beginning to display hostility towards the black families in the area, a situation exploited and inflamed by groups such as Sir Oswald Mosley's Union Movement and other far-right groups such as the White Defence League, who urged disaffected white residents to "Keep Britain White".
