David Olusoga
Black and British

A landmark series on BBC2 Black and British is a timely reminder from British Nigerian historian David Olusoga that Black people have always been part of the British story. There were African soldiers on Hadrian’s Wall and black Britons fought at Trafalgar and in the trenches of the First Word War. Blending historical analysis and personal experience he will talk with fellow historian David Reynolds about the blind spots in our perspectives on Britain’s past and present.
