Discover the fascinating history of African migration, from thousands of years ago to the 21st Century.

Experiences are brought to life with case studies of children from the 20th and 21st centuries.

About the Author
Hakim Adi is currently Professor of the History of Africa and the African Diaspora at the University of Chichester. Trained as an historian focusing on Africa and African history in the twentieth century, his work seeks to demonstrate not only the important links that were established between those on the African continent and its diaspora but also that Africans and those of African descent have played a significant but often neglected role in the history of Britain. As one of the few historians specialising in the history of the African diaspora in Britain, his work has led to many speaking engagements around the world, as well as media appearances, work with museums and archives and the publication of three history books for children.
