Presents the extraordinary life stories of fourteen Black British people and their contributions to the worlds of literature, theater, journalism, politics, medicine, sport, and music.

Carefully researched and eloquently written by children’s author J.T. Williams, Bright Stars of Black British History brings to life historical figures from Tudor England to the present day. Written in both an educational and entertaining style, the book uses individual stories of important historical figures to lift the voices of enslaved and marginalized people. It makes clear the important influence that Black British people have had in shaping culture, shifting public opinion, and changing British history. It also features sensitive portraits and contextual paintings by award-winning illustrator Angela Vives and is presented in a highly giftable and accessible format, functioning as both a narrative-led story collection and a resource for schools.
