Spanning over 200 years, this unprecedented collection features images of Black Britons at work, at war, on stage and on the playing field. People of African and Caribbean descent have inhabited the British Isles for centuries. Paul Gilroy, renowned for his work exploring the social and cultural dimensions of black Britishness, has assembled a living history of black people in the British Isles. Spanning two hundred years, this collection features images of black Britons at work, at war, and at play. Paul Gilroy was a professor of sociology and African American studies at Yale University until 2005, when he left to become a professor of social theory at The London School of Economics and Political Science.
