Black British History: New Perspectives

by Hakim Adi (Editor) - £18.99  Zed Books Ltd (2019)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781786994264 | ISBN 10: 1786994267

An unparalleled study of the black British experience, unearthing its crucial yet largely forgotten role in shaping British history.
 
For over 1500 years before the Empire Windrush docked on British shores, people of African descent have played a significant and far-ranging role in the country’s history, from the African soldiers on Hadrian’s Wall to the Black British intellectuals who made London a hub of radical, Pan-African ideas. But while there has been a growing interest in this history, there has been little recognition of the sheer breadth and diversity of the Black British experience, until now.
 
This collection combines the latest work from both established and emerging scholars of Black British history. It spans the centuries from the first Black Britons to the latest African migrants, covering everything from Africans in Tudor England to the movement for reparations, and the never ending struggles against racism in between.
 
An invaluable resource for both future scholarship and those looking for a useful introduction to Black British history, Black British History: New Perspectives has the potential to transform our understanding of Britain, and of its place in the world.
