Many Struggles: New Histories of African and Caribbean People in Britain
'A wonderful showcase of the most exciting work happening in Black British History and a rousing call to action' Christienna Fryar, historian of Britain and the Caribbean
The history of African and Caribbean people in Britain is centuries long. Although integral to, and indivisible from 'British history', it is usually treated as a footnote - or forgotten altogether. But with the flourishing of the Black Lives Matter uprisings, and fierce debates around the legacies of colonialism, has come a renewed hunger for the recovery of this history.
Edited by leading historian Hakim Adi, Many Struggles includes contributions from an array of emerging historians and scholar-activists. Covering the sixteenth to the late twentieth centuries, the book reveals the long history of African and Caribbean people in Britain. Drawing on new archival research, Many Struggles emphasises often-neglected themes such as local histories, women, gender and political activism.
