The Guardian it truly sings in picture book form with the history made even more vivid via a trove of old paintings, maps and photographs combined with bold artwork by Melleny Taylor and Jake Alexander.

She enjoys working with a variety of materials – using a range of mixed media from pencil crayons to inks, from watercolours to sticks from the garden!

From Roman Africans guarding Hadrian's Wall, to an African trumpeter in the court of Henry the Eighth, Black Georgians fighting for the abolition of slavery, Black soldiers fighting for Britain in the First World War, Windrush and right up today.It shows how through resisting colonial slavery, people produced new cultures known as the Black Atlantic, that continue to shape our world. By bringing together collections from across the University of Cambridge’s museums, libraries and colleges with loans from around the world, Black Atlantic: Power, People, Resistance asks new questions about Cambridge’s role in the transatlantic slave trade and looks at how objects and artworks have influenced history and perspectives. By rethinking our connected and complex histories and looking again through the lens of contemporary art, tomorrow’s story can be one of repair, hope and freedom. But Fitzwilliam’s generosity was only possible because of the wealth his grandfather accumulated in part through the transatlantic slave trade.

Displaying objects and artworks made in West Africa, the Caribbean, South America and Europe, this landmark exhibition also reveals the histories that have been silenced; not just stories of exploitation, but those of resilience and liberation, too. This children's edition of the bestseller Black and British: A Forgotten History is beautifully illustrated in full-colour with maps, portrait galleries, timelines, photos and portraits.He is the Creative Director of Uplands Television Limited, a Bristol based independent production company, through which he develops and exec-produces history and arts projects. He often makes work based on popular culture and current events, having created a Star Wars -themed zine and portraits of public figures such as Taika Waititi and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The dimensions of the book are wider than A4 and need a deeper bookshelf, but no child's bookshelf should be without it.
