Britons Through Negro Spectacles

ABC Merriman-Labor; Bernardine Evaristo / Bernardine Evaristo Mohammed Mansary
Brought to you by Penguin.'We shall therefore confine our walk to Central London where people meet on business during the day and to West London where they meet for pleasure at night. If you will walk about the first City in the British Empire arm in arm with Merriman-Labor you are sure to see Britons in merriment and at labour by night and by day in West and Central London.'In Britons Through Negro Spectacles Merriman-Labor takes us on a joyous intoxicating tour of London at the turn of the 20th century. Slyly subverting the colonial gaze usually placed on Africa he introduces us to the citizens culture and customs of Britain with a mischievous glint in his eye. This incredible work of social commentary feels a century ahead of its time and provides unique insights into the intersection between empire race and community at this important moment in history.Selected by Booker Prize-winning author Bernardine Evaristo this series rediscovers and celebrates pioneering books depicting black Britain that remap the nation.© ABC Merriman-Labor 2022 (P) Penguin Audio 2022
