The forgotten history of Black Europeans

Olivette Otele.jpgThe presence of people of African descent in Europe is generally viewed through the prism of slavery and colonization, obscuring a much older shared history. 

In her new book African Europeans, An Untold Story, Professor Olivette Otele uncovers a forgotten past, from Emperor Septimius Severus, to enslaved Africans living in Europe during the Renaissance, and all the way to present-day migrants moving to Europe’s cities. 

With a forthcoming translation in French. A must-read book !
