London's Black history is inextricably bound up with slavery. There are stories of displacement and cruelty, or people bought and sold as chattels, denied their past and any kind of future. Yet despite enormous barriers, a number of Black writers were active, writing down their horrific experiences and their ambitions for a better future for their people in the 1700s. This book uncovers and celebrates five African writers who came to London in the eighteenth century. Their work, and the journeys they took to deliver it, make for extraordinary reading.
