Black London: the imperial metropolis and decolonization in the twentieth century

Matera, Marc, 1976- author

This vibrant history of London in the 20th century reveals the city as a key site in the development of black internationalism and anti-colonialism. Marc Matera shows the significant contributions of people of African descent to London's rich social and cultural history, masterfully weaving together the stories of many famous historical figures and presenting their quests for personal, professional, and political recognition against the backdrop of a declining British Empire
