Black Londoners: A History

by Susan Okokon
£14.99   paperback  The History Press Ltd (2009)

Black Londoners: A History by Susan Okokon A tribute to the Black community of London.
 
This fascinating illustrated history traces the relationship of London to her Black citizens over the past centuries. Susan Okokon provides a detailed testimony and visual record of this important period in the history of London's Black population and shows the many-sided contribution of Black people to the British capital.
 
Her book chronicles the working lives of ordinary members of the Black community - hairdressers and barbers, cafe owners, business men and women, technicians, transport and council workers, nurses, doctors and lawyers. She shows, too, what it means to be raised as a Londoner, and gives a glimpse of the lives of ordinary families, mothers, fathers, children and teenagers.
 
Black Londoners offers an unforgettable insight into a remarkable aspect of the traditions and developing character of the modern city.
