Win the fabulous illustrated edition of David Olusoga's Black and British

We're giving away five copies of the brilliant new children's edition of David Olusoga's bestselling book.

The front cover of Black and British: An Illustrated History

Historian David Olusoga's Black and British: A Forgotten History was a huge bestseller - and now he's adapted it for younger readers!

It's a beautiful, hardback, illustrated edition featuring gorgeous artwork from Jake Alexander and Melleny Taylor, and would make a perfect gift for any children who want to know more about our country's past.

Covering 1,800 years of Black British history, the book explores everything from the Roman Africans guarding Hadrian's Wall to an African trumpeter in the court of Henry VIII and Black Georgians fighting for the abolition of slavery.

With timelines, portrait galleries, maps and photos, the full-colour book also takes in Black soldiers fighting for Britain in the First World War and the stories of the Windrush generation.

We're delighted to have five copies of Black and British: An Illustrated History to give away, so if you fancy winning one simply answer the question below and leave your details before the closing date of 11pm on Wednesday, 1 December. Good luck!
