Join British-Nigerian historian, author, presenter and BAFTA winning film-maker, David Olusoga, as he takes us on a journey through Black British history.
Sharing stories of the forgotten histories of Black people in Britain from Roman times right through to the present day, we’ll hear about Roman Africans guarding Hadrian’s Wall, an African trumpeter in the court of Henry the Eighth, Black Georgians fighting for the abolition of slavery, Black soldiers fighting for Britain in the First World War and Windrush, right up to the present day.
These are the stories that brought us all together in this country, and this event is the essential starting place for anyone who wants to learn about Black British History.
