A history book with a twist, structured around a playlist of twenty eight songs, listed chronologically. Each song is a jumping off point for deeper social, political and historical analysis, tracking key moments in black history, and the emotional impact of both the songs and the artists who performed them. The book redefines British history, the Empire and post colonialism, and invites readers to immerse themselves in music and think again about the narratives and key moments in history that they have been taught up to now.
Targeted at upper middle grade to YA, this is a book that will also attract a much wider adult audience.
