A GREAT AND MIGHTY WALK - JOHN HENRIK CLARK
Duration 120 minutes
J H Clarke advocated for studies on the African-American experience and the place of Africans in world history. He challenged academic historians and helped shift the way African history was studied and taught. Clarke was "a scholar devoted to redressing what he saw as a systematic and racist suppression and distortion of African history by traditional scholars." When some of the scholarship he championed was dismissed by many historians, Clarke imparted to them the biases of Eurocentric views.
He was memorialized for devoting "himself to placing people of African ancestry 'on the map of human geography'."Clarke said "History is not everything, but it is a starting point. History is a clock that people use to tell their political and cultural time of day. It is a compass they use to find themselves on the map of human geography.

THE FIRST BLACK BRITONS
Duration: 60 minutes
This is a dramatic story of Imperial High Adventure that sheds new light on how our colonial past shaped modern Britain. The journey begins in the last years of the 18th century and ends in 1927 revealing an era of challenges to colonial attitudes and notions of Britishness. It centres on the incredible history of the West India Regiment and the act of parliament that established them as a new class of citizen - 'Black and British'. The Caribbean is the hidden story of the Napoleonic wars. In 1793, fighting in the region triggered a national emergency, which led Britain's abolitionist Prime Minister William Pitt (the Younger), to create an entire regiment - of slaves. Over the next century, Pitt's 'warrior-caste' of 'superior Negroes' defended British interests in the Caribbean, provided a cutting edge in the scramble for African territory and forged a new British identity as imperial heroes.
