In the Africa and Britain: A Forgotten History series—available through Films On Demand—award-winning historian David Olusoga re-tells the story of black people in the U.K. and, to do so, travels to the United States, Jamaica, South Africa, and Sierra Leone. African people have been a crucial part of British history for 2,000 years. Find out where the story of multicultural Britain really began.
