Publisher's Summary

David Olusoga's Black and British is a rich and revealing exploration of the extraordinarily long relationship between the British Isles and the people of Africa. Drawing on new genetic and genealogical research, original records, expert testimony and contemporary interviews, Black and British reaches back to Roman Britain, the medieval imagination and Shakespeare's Othello.

Unflinching, confronting taboos and revealing hitherto unknown scandals, Olusoga describes how black and white Britons have been intimately entwined for centuries.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "A fascinating and timely book"

    This wonderful book is full of detail and is essential reading for anyone with an interest in British history and it's long association with black people. The chapters on the slave trade, plantation economies and the abolitionists were especially fascinating. The book dispels the commonly held assumption that Britain's relationship with black people only began with the Windrush generation. The book is a triumph for Olusoga and I personally feel prouder to call myself black and British now having a better understanding of the history of people like me who for song long have felt written out of the history of this nation.
