Letter: Black and white

Sir: With reference to Harrods' "brisk under-counter trade in Little Black Sambo" (4 September), my three children were brought up on and took great delight in the book.

My daughter spent several years working with Swapo and I like to think she played some small part in helping Namibia towards independence. My elder son numbers many members of Leicester's Asian and Caribbean communities among his friends and his brother has chosen a school for his son because of its mixed ethnic backgrounds.

Your readers may draw their own conclusions.
