This book does exactly what it says on the front - it looks at London's history, it's art and it's culture. All these variants come together to give a fantastically informative history of London in a way that's not been done before. Avril and Jody have researched and combined various aspects of the Black community to get this book to them.
Looking at the art of London, they praise many black artists; looking at the history of London, they look at people who are rarely talked about such as Rotimi Fani-Kayode, Yinka Shonibare, Marianne Jean-Baptiste and many more; they look at the culture of the community in places such as the Black Cultural Archives, Autograph and the Africa Centre.
Featuring well known and not so well known figures of history, Black London: History, Art and Culture tells tales of people who have either lived, worked or simply visited London and have cast their spell on the City. Black history is world history and this is their story.
