Publisher's Summary

An accessible guide to the key milestones in Black history, culture, and society across the globe - from the ancient world to the present.

Discover the rich and complex history of the peoples of Africa, and the struggles and triumphs of Black cultures and communities around the world.

With profiles of key people, movements, and events, The Black History Book brings together accounts of the most significant ideas and milestones in Black history and culture. This vital and thought-provoking audiobook presents a bold and accessible overview of the history of the African continent and its peoples - from the earliest human migrations to modern Black communities and the African diaspora.

The Black History Book brings to life the stories of the early kingdoms of Ancient Egypt, Nubia, and Carthage; the powerful empires of the medieval and early modern eras; and the struggle against European colonizers. Black history and culture beyond the African continent is also explored in detail - including the Atlantic slave trade; the quilombos (slave resistance camps) of Brazil; the Harlem Renaissance and Jazz Age; the "Windrush" migration; civil rights and Black feminist movements; and Black Lives Matter.

The Black History Book examines the achievements and struggles of Black communities across the world up to the modern day, as well as the influence of Black cultures on art, literature, and music the world over.

Contributor: David Olusoga is a British Nigerian historian, broadcaster, and filmmaker.
