Gretchen Gerzina is the Paul Murray Kendall Chair in Biography, and Professor of English at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Her lunchtime lecture will introduce the new edition of her classic text Black England which has just been published. It has formed a landmark in Black British history as it engages with the lives of the Black Britons long before the post-World II migration from the Caribbean and Africa. She will introduce historical characters featured in the book and answer questions about the book’s importance in this new era of Black Lives Matter.
