    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.
