A black population existed in Britain long before the Windrush generation arrived in 1948. As early as the 16th century, there were evidences of black people in the royal courts of England and Scotland. Britain’s active involvement in the ‘Triangular’ slave trade saw a growth in the number of black people. Did you know that Queen Elizabeth I, alarmed at the growing black population, attempted to expel them? Find out what she did and how this impacted the lives of black people in her realm.

Discover how the increasing numbers of enslaved Africans survived during the 17th century, and how they resisted slavery. For example, do you know the name of the person on the front cover? Learn about her resistance against slavery and the resistance of other Africans in England and the British colonies.
