David Olusoga - Black and British: A Forgotten History on Saturday 21st October 2017
Please note, this event has been cancelled.
Writing on the Wall and Waterstones present David Olusoga's Black and British: A Forgotten History as part of WoW's Black History Month mini Festival.
Join David Olusoga in exploring and discussing the rich and revealing story of the long relationship between the British Isles and the people of Africa and the Caribbean. Unflinching, confronting taboos and revealing hitherto unknown scandals, David Olusoga describes how the lives of black and white Britons have been entwined for centuries. The book is an accompaniment to the highly acclaimed BBC2 series for which David Olusoga organised the commemorative plaque in memory of seafarer Charles Wootton who was murdered in Liverpool during the 1919 race riots.
