The idea that Britain became a mixed-race country after 1945 is a common mistake. Georgian England had a large and distinctive Black community. Whether prosperous citizens or newly freed slaves, they all ran the risk of kidnap and sale to plantations. Black England tells their dramatic, often moving stories, exploring a fascinating chapter of our shared past that has been ignored too long. This wonderfully readable history brings to life the triumphs and tortures of Black England, sometimes heart-warming and sometimes tragic.
