David Olusoga - A Black History of Britain
Mon 22 May 2017, 18:00 – 21:00 BST
Historian, broadcaster and author of Black and British: A Forgotten History David Olusoga joins us to talk about black British history as an integral and essential aspect of mainstream British history. This aspect of our history have come to be regarded as a segregated, ghettoised narrative which runs alongside the broader narrative of the history of Britain. But black British history is not an optional extra. It is as global as the empire and like Britain’s triangular slave trade, it is a triangular history, firmly planted in Britain, Africa and the Americas. On all three continents stand its ruins and relics.
