David is a Fellow of both the Royal Society of Literature and the Royal Historical Society and sits on the Scott Trust. The dimensions of the book are wider than A4 and need a deeper bookshelf, but no child's bookshelf should be without it. In 1816, Richard Fitzwilliam donated vast sums of money, literature and art to the University of Cambridge, creating the Museum that is named after him.

But Fitzwilliam’s generosity was only possible because of the wealth his grandfather accumulated in part through the transatlantic slave trade. A clear concise book starting with the Romans and finishing with the Windrush and ensuing scandal to BLM protests.This children's edition of the bestseller Black and British: A Forgotten History is beautifully illustrated in full-colour with maps, portrait galleries, timelines, photos and portraits. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

From Roman Africans guarding Hadrian’s Wall, to an African trumpeter in the court of Henry the Eighth, Black Georgians fighting for the abolition of slavery, Black soldiers fighting for Britain in the First World War, Windrush and right up today.He is Professor of Public History at the University of Manchester, the author of several books and a columnist for the Observer, The Voice and BBC History Magazine, also writing forthe Guardian and the New Statesman. Maps and portrait galleries effortlessly convey how Black and British history have been woven together since the Roman invasion. He is a contributor to the Oxford Companion to Black British History and in 2019 was awarded an OBE for services to history and community integration.

The Guardian it truly sings in picture book form with the history made even more vivid via a trove of old paintings, maps and photographs combined with bold artwork by Melleny Taylor and Jake Alexander. David was also one of the presenters on the BBC landmark arts series Civilizations alongside Simon Schama and Mary Beard.
