Description

A clear concise book starting with the Romans and finishing with the Windrush and ensuing scandal to BLM protests. This children's edition of the bestseller Black and British: A Forgotten History is beautifully illustrated in full-colour with maps, portrait galleries, timelines, photos and portraits. He often makes work based on popular culture and current events, having created a Star Wars -themed zine and portraits of public figures such as Taika Waititi and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Acknowledging this story for the first time has led to new discoveries about the objects Fitzwilliam donated, the people who collected them, and the cultures that created them.

By rethinking our connected and complex histories and looking again through the lens of contemporary art, tomorrow’s story can be one of repair, hope and freedom.By bringing together collections from across the University of Cambridge’s museums, libraries and colleges with loans from around the world, Black Atlantic: Power, People, Resistance asks new questions about Cambridge’s role in the transatlantic slave trade and looks at how objects and artworks have influenced history and perspectives. It shows how through resisting colonial slavery, people produced new cultures known as the Black Atlantic, that continue to shape our world. These and many other questions are answered in this essential introduction to 1800 years of the Black British history. This beautiful hardback gift book is a stunning visual journey through Black British history for younger readers by award-winning historian and broadcaster David Olusoga and illustrated by Jake Alexander and Melleny Taylor. The Guardian it truly sings in picture book form with the history made even more vivid via a trove of old paintings, maps and photographs combined with bold artwork by Melleny Taylor and Jake Alexander.

This exhibition explores some new stories from history – stories that help us to separate fact from fiction and history from myth. But Fitzwilliam’s generosity was only possible because of the wealth his grandfather accumulated in part through the transatlantic slave trade.We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others.
