Black History White History : Britain's Historical Programme Between Windrush and Wilberforce Paperback / softback
Edited by Barbara Korte, Eva Ulrike Pirker
Britain's recent historical culture is marked by a shift.
As a consequence of new political directives, black history began to be mainstreamed into the realm of national history from the late 1990s onwards.
This book assesses a number of manifestations of this new cultural historiography on screen and on stage, in museums and other accessible sites, emerging in the context of two commemorative events: the Windrush anniversary and the 1807 abolition bicentenary.
It inquires into the terms on which the new historical programme could take hold, its sustainability and its representational politics.
