Winner of the 2017 PEN Hessell-Tiltman Prize
A Waterstones.com History Book of the Year Longlisted for the Orwell Prize Shortlisted for the inaugural Jhalak Prize In this vital re-examination of a shared history, award-winning historian and broadcaster David Olusoga tells the rich and revealing story of the long relationship between the British Isles and the people of Africa and the Caribbean.
Drawing on new genealogical research, original records, and expert testimony, Black and British reaches back to Roman Britain, the medieval imagination, Elizabethan `blackamoors' and the global slave-trading empire. It shows that the great industrial boom of the nineteenth century was built on American slavery, and that black Britons fought at Trafalgar and in the trenches of both World Wars.
Black British history is woven into the cultural and economic histories of the nation. It is not a singular history, but one that belongs to us all. Unflinching, confronting taboos and revealing hitherto unknown scandals, Olusoga describes how the lives of black and white Britons have been entwined for centuries.
Lift-Up Coffee Table
This little number is bound to add that extra pizazz to your living room, have you ever seen anything like it? I didn't think so. Imagine inviting the in-laws over, they sit down on the sofas, judging your house, you know it, they know it. "Would you like a drink?", of course they'd like a drink. Before you place the drinks down on the coffee table, you lift the top off and grab a coaster out of the top compartment, like it's nothing, now look at their faces, amazement. Now look at your face, smug. Enjoy it, you've earned it.
