In Black and British, David Olusoga tells the rich and revealing story of the long relationship between the British Isles and the people of Africa and the Caribbean.
It is a story that reaches back to Roman Britain, to Elizabethan 'blackamoors' and the global slave-trading empire. Black Britons fought at Trafalgar and in the trenches of both world wars, while the great industrial boom of the nineteenth century was built on American slavery. Black British history is woven into the cultural and economic histories of the nation. It is not a singular history, but one that belongs to us all.

Standard UK delivery is by Royal Mail and costs £3.50 but may be more for heavier parcels. Most items take between 1 and 5 working days to be delivered.
We use Royal Mail's airmail service to post overseas. This can take from 3 days to 10 days and costs from £5.00 in Europe and £6.50 for the rest of the world. As with UK delivery, this may be more for heavier parcels.
There is a surface mail service for international (not European) deliveries, which can be up to 50% cheaper than by air but takes much longer, possibly 6 to 8 weeks. Please email your proposed order for a surface mail price.
If you would like to order a large number of items, it may be worth contacting us directly to enquire about shipping costs.
