The first people who settled on the grey-green island of Britain were Black.

Some of the Romans who invaded, and even ruled in Britain, were also Black.

Later, there were Black Tudors, Georgians and Victorians.

Award-winning author Atinuke brings her experience as an oral storyteller to carry readers through the fascinating story of Black people in Britain. This eye-opening and easy-to-read chronological history is brought to life through scenes, detailed maps and timelines by illustrator Kingsley Nebechi.
