Black people have always been part of the British story. There were African soldiers on Hadrians Wall and black sailors at Trafalgar. There were black people in the Tudor court and for centuries Africa and her peoples were a British obsession. In his talk David will argue that black history isnt a separate annex of British history but a fascinating, surprising and revealing aspect of our national story.
