This is the first reference book to explore the full history of black people in the British Isles from classical times to the present day. Uncovering the rich and diverse contributions black people have made to British society, including African auxiliaries at Hadrian's Wall, the First World War officer Walter Tull, and the Windrush Generation, this A-Z is packed with absorbing information.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Editors Dabydeen (Black Writers in Britain), John Gilmore (Faces of the Caribbean), and Cecily Jones (Engendering Whiteness) have collected the research of 112 field specialists in this book devoted to prominent deceased British figures of African and Afro-Caribbean descent. Equally well examined are the events, organizations, places, concepts, and non-British historical figures-from the second century C.E. to the 21st century-that contributed significantly to the development of Afro-Briton history. Averaging several paragraphs to several pages in length, the entries are organized alphabetically by topic name. A 14-page chronology and an extensive bibliography conclude this thoroughgoing and engagingly written work. Highly recommended for general history and cultural studies collections.
