Black and British: A Forgotten History
By David Olusoga
David Olusoga tells the rich and revealing story of the long relationship between the British Isles and the people of African and the Caribbean. It is a story that reaches back to Roman Britain, Elizabethan ‘blackamoors’ and the global slave-trading empire. Black Britons fought at Trafalgar and in both world wars, while the great industrial boom of the nineteenth century was built on American slavery.
