THE AFRICAN LIVES IN NORTHERN ENGLAND
This booklet, authored by the African Lives in Northern England project and edited by Beverley Prevatt Goldstein, celebrates the history of Black lives in northern England and uncovers a number of fascinating hidden histories in the process.
It explores the presence and success of people of African descent in the North East and helps to dispel the myth that the North East is exclusively white and monocultural.
From Septimus Severus, the Roman Emperor, to 19th century Cumbrian John Kent who was believed to be Britain’s first black policeman, to 21st century Newcastle MP Chinyelu ‘Chi’ Onwurah, this booklet reveals a rich and diverse history.
The booklet will be launched on 17 October (11.30am-12.30pm) at Durham Book Festival. Tickets£10 inc.copy of booklet.
This is a limited edition and copies will be sent out on a first-come, first-serve basis as payments are received.
