Black Welsh people
Black Welsh people are inhabitants of Wales who have an African or an Afro-Caribbean background. Wales is home to one of the United Kingdom's oldest Afro communities, and Tiger Bay in Cardiff has housed a large Somali population from the municipality's inception. The 2011 census reported there were 18,276 Welsh African people, amounting to 0.6% of the Welsh population.
Some famous Welsh African people include Shirley Bassey; Vaughan Gething, member of the National Assembly for Wales; athlete Colin Jackson; frontman of the alternative metal band Skindred, Benji Webbe; and TV presenter Josie d'Arby.
