An SNP councillor has told how he was asked if he was a "Catholic or Protestant Rasta" as a teenager in a new documentary exploring how it felt to grow up black in Scotland.

Graham Campbell said his race was less important to many friends than the football team he supported while growing up as a Rastafarian-Scot in Glasgow.

Campbell, who became the city's first African Caribbean councillor when he was elected to the Springburn/Robroyston ward in 2017, revealed he was quizzed more on the "stupid Celtic or Rangers question" more than his racial background as a youngster.

It comes as part of a new BBC Scotland programme asking prominent black Scots from three different generations what it means to be black and Scottish.

The documentary, produced by filmmaker Stewart Kyasimire, spoke to Campbell, as well as comedian Bruce Fummey, Netflix star Ncuti Gatwa and television presenter Jean Johansson on black and Scottish identity.

Campbell also described the feeling of being a "walking exhibit" when talking about Scotland's role in the slave trade after working to highlight its role in the city's history.

He told the documentary: "I have often been asked the stupid Rangers - Celtic question: 'Are you Protestant Rasta or a Catholic Rasta?'"

"If you have a slavery name, it's inherited from the ancestors who were owned and enslaved by the people who owned these plantations.

"I knew Scotsmen had done that. We are like the walking exhibits in a crime scene as the evidence Scotland had that colonial past."

Filmmaker Stewart said the most common thing he heard when he went anywhere with his Scottish accent was: "I didn't know there were black people in Scotland."

According to the last census, African, Caribbean or Black groups made up one per cent - around 36,000 - of the population of Scotland, an increase of 28,000 people since 2001.

Presenter Johansson spoke of her shock to be considered as "white" in Africa, despite identifying as a black Scottish woman at home.

Johnasson, who is married to former Rangers winger Jonatan, said: "I have never been described as white, so for Africans to see me as a white person was just weird."

"I identify most as being Scottish but I am a black Scottish woman and I am OK with that."

She added she hoped to be a role model for young black Scots after missing out on the experience of having her own inspiration to look up to as a youngster.

Jean said: "To think there is anyone watching my TV shows and thinking they can be like me or do what I've done - that is everything to me - because I never had that."

Black and Scottish will be shown on the BBC Scotland channel on Tuesday, October 8 at 22:30.
