David Olusoga - Black and British: A Forgotten History

As part of the Salisbury International Arts Festival, the award-winning historian, author and broadcaster explores the extraordinarily long relationship between the British Isles and the people of Africa and the Caribbean.

Drawing on new genetic and genealogical research, original records, expert testimony and contemporary interviews, Olusoga reaches back to Roman Britain, Elizabethan ‘blackamoors’ and the global slave-trading empire.

Unflinching, confronting taboos, and revealing hitherto unknown scandals, he describes how the lives of black and white Britons have been entwined for centuries.
