The paper presents a close reading of the reports of racial oppression that appeared in issues of two periodicals between 1888 and 1895. They created an extensive political geographical imagination by mapping international cases of racial prejudice. The focus upon racial inequality across the United States as well as the British empire enabled it to create a distinctive critique of racial prejudice across the English-speaking world. A framework is developed for debates on racial prejudice that drew together criticisms of labour laws in India, the removal of people from their lands in Southern Africa, the racial segregation of public transport in the USA and the restriction of Chinese labour in Australia
