Overview

Black Edwardians reveals the presence of Black people in all walks of life across the British Isles at the height of the imperialist era. This hitherto undiscovered Black presence challenges conventional views on imperialism, racism and British social history. Historians of British society have largely ignored this most visible of minorities, and commentators on racism have been silent on the period.

Green uses contemporary newspapers, books and memoirs of the era (photographic evidence), archive documentation, the lively recollections of veterans (located by him in the 1980s), their family papers and comments of younger family associates. His work challenges our ideas of the recent past.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Countering the idea that the only ethnically African people in the British Isles in the early part of the century were students destined to return to Africa, the author shows a wide variety of African- descended permanent residents and discusses their backgrounds and the lives they led. He devotes chapters to musicians and other entertainers, athletes, those serving the royal government, the black bourgeoisie, and the working class. Distributed by ISBS. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
