Product description

Review

Gilroy's commentary is tart and learned; this is the rare book that would sit as easily on coffee tables as on university syllabuses. --Daily Telegraph

Black Britain is a testament to the strength black people in this country have shown in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds. --Metro

Synopsis

People of African and Caribbean descent have inhabited Great Britain for centuries. Eminent professor Paul Gilroy, renowned for his work exploring the social and cultural dimensions of British blackness and black Britishness, has assembled a living visual history of blacks in the British Isles. Spanning over two hundred years, this is an unprecedented collection featuring over two hundred and fifty photographs, with an introduction and commentary by Gilroy, and a foreword by scholar Stuart Hall.
