In Black and British, David Olusoga tells the rich and revealing story of the long relationship between the British Isles and the people of Africa and the Caribbean.
It is a story that reaches back to Roman Britain, to Elizabethan 'blackamoors' and the global slave-trading empire. Black Britons fought at Trafalgar and in the trenches of both world wars, while the great industrial boom of the nineteenth century was built on American slavery. Black British history is woven into the cultural and economic histories of the nation. It is not a singular history, but one that belongs to us all.
