The history of black people in Britain is frequently reduced to the story of recent black settlement. But that is not where this extraordinary cross-continental relationship begins. Africa and Britain: A Forgotten History re-tells the story of black people in the UK and – to do so – travels to the United States, Jamaica, South Africa and Sierra Leone. Forgotten art vaults are unlocked, artefacts re-examined and 20 Black History plaques unveiled to the public. Award-winning historian David Olusoga tells the story of a young enslaved African brought to Britain under the protection of Queen Victoria, and explores the terrible legacy of slavery and the impact of the world wars. A BBC production.
