Summary

An overview of black world history from the earliest African empires to the #blacklivesmatter movement.

Black history is an integral part of world history. From the injustices of the past and present, we can learn and be inspired to make the world we live in more fair, equal and just.

Black History Matters chronicles thousands of years of black history, looking at:

The African kingdoms, from Ta-Seti and ancient Egypt to Songhai and Benin.
The transatlantic slave trade.
The colonisation of Africa.
Apartheid.
Segregation in the USA.
The Windrush generation.
The birth of the black civil rights movement.
The origins of the #blacklivesmatter movement.
Black contributions to world culture today, from literature and music to sport.

Along the way, biographies shine a light on inspiring black figures, from the poet and freed slave Phillis Wheatley to the peaceful reformer Dr Martin Luther King and the journalist and activist Claudia Jones, whose words and achievements live on today.

NOTE : Shortlisted for the Information Book Award 2020
