Olusoga’s celebrated title is now available in a beautiful and absorbing illustrated format that invites readers from seven and up to pore over its pages. David Olusoga’s thought provoking text charts the forgotten histories of Black people in Britain from Roman times right through to the present day. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. He is Professor of Public History at the University of Manchester, the author of several books and a columnist for the Observer, The Voice and BBC History Magazine , also writing for the Guardian and the New Statesman .

It shows how through resisting colonial slavery, people produced new cultures known as the Black Atlantic, that continue to shape our world.Refunds for correctly delivered and undamaged items are available within 30 days of the goods' receipt.
