The riots that occurred in Liverpool during June 1919 were just one of a series of disorders that happened in various parts of Britain during that year. Not all the other incidents were understood in racialised terms. Indeed, there was unrest in Liverpool during August 1919 which occurred during the only police strike that has occurred in Britain. Disorder broke out elsewhere during many events held to celebrate the Armistice. In Luton, for example, the town hall was razed to the ground by rioters angered at their exclusion from the official Peace Day celebrations. The riots considered in this Chapter share many similarities to others which occurred in London, Glasgow, Cardiff, Newport and Newcastle-upon-Tyne around the same time. All were characterised by hostility between white residents and black, largely male, communities regarding, amongst other things, employment on ships sailing from those ports.
