Black History Matters: The Story of Black History from African Kingdoms to Black Lives Matter

by Robin Walker

Ref: 16174

Ambitious in its scope and brilliantly successful in that task- with a clearly targeted British audience. A journey which begins with the African Empires and moves through the histories of the transatlantic slave trade and colonialism before ending with the civil rights movements and Black History today. Full of essential Black British material, including UK-based mid-18th century abolitionist campaigns, Black uprisings in UK-colonised countries, the Windrush legacy and the murder of Stephen Lawrence. Detailed glossary, index and timeline; colourful fact box 'splashes' and archive photographs. Flawless non-fiction. By an acclaimed UK Back Historian and educator, also known as the Black History Man. Walker's works include, most famously, When We Ruled (2011; for adult readers), "hailed as the single most advanced historical synthesis on the history of Africa and its people to date" (publisher website). Age 9+, Hardback 60pp
