I've waited so long to read a comprehensively researched book about Black history on this island. This is it: a journey of discovery and a truly exciting and important work--Zainab Abbas

From the Roman era to today, Hakim Adi has produced the most comprehensive history of African and Caribbean people since Peter Fryer's Staying Power. His telling of British history characterises the diverse, multi-centred chronology of African and Caribbean landmarks, crises, progress, organisations, communities and, most importantly, individual experiences in Britain--History Matters

'They came with the Windrush' - well, no, they didn't: Africans have lived here for the past two thousand years. Hakim Adi summarises this history, their accomplishments, their struggles and the issues they now confront. A superb introduction to this long, often hidden, history. Black Lives do Matter--Marika Sherwood

An essential work that, in exploring national values, inter-cultural alliances and the politics of racialised identity, shines a light on the acts of the remarkable people across time who epitomised a universal struggle for the rights of all--Toyin Agbetu

The most comprehensive and accessible guidebook on what has come to be known as 'Black British history'. Suited for all readers, it provides a useful insight into how this history has developed, and the struggles to push for its expansion. It also inspires us to consider how we might contribute to the ever-growing understanding of this historical field--Young Historians Project
