For 500 years, black Britons and their struggles have played a pivotal role in British history. From the economic reliance on empire to black workers’ central role in British industry, this history has been one of dynamic struggles against slavery, racism, and discrimination. Ron Ramdin’s classic account, The Making of the Black Working Class in Britain, opposes the mainstream view that marginalises this history and argues that black workers have always been central to the working class in Britain. To celebrate its republication in a new and expanded edition, join Ron Ramdin in conversation.

Ron Ramdin is a historian, biographer and novelist. His previous books include Paul Robeson: The Man and His Mission, The Other Middle Passage and From Chattel-slave to Wage-earner: History of Trade Unionism in Trinidad and Tobago.
