The Georgian period was one which saw an increase of African people living in Britain. Learn about who they were and how they found themselves on the British Isles. How were they perceived and what would their experiences have been at a time when African enslavement was rife in the New World?

In this talk Nadia Denton will present the narratives of individuals who lived in the UK at this time showing how they were to pave the way for a modern day multi-cultural Britain.
