David Olusoga: The State of the British Union, Why Black History Matters Following his recent four part BBC documentary, 'Union' David Olusoga, British-Nigerian historian, author, presenter and BAFTA winning film-maker, examines why black history matters, the causes of the ‘history wars’ and asks where they might lead us. 

History is now front-page news, contested as never before. Statues have fallen and the reputations of great men called into question; David is an expert at examining what history reveals about contemporary society. Professor of Public History at the University of Manchester, and a columnist for The Observer, David also writes for The Guardian, The New Statesman, The Voice and BBC History Magazine. He is the author of seven books including - Black & British: A Forgotten History (awarded both the Longman-History Today Trustees Award and the PEN Hessell-Tiltman Prize), The World’s War, Black & British A Short Essential History, The Kaiser’s Holocaust: Germany’s Forgotten Genocide and the Colonial Roots of Nazism, and A House Through Time 

A new publication is expected very soon Presenter of the long-running BBC history series A House Through Time, David also and wrote and presented the award winning series Black & British: A Forgotten History, and Britain’s Forgotten Slave Owners. Other presenting credits include The World’s War, The Unwanted: The Secret Windrush Files, and the landmark BBC arts series Civilizations. 

David is a recipient of both the British Academy's Presidents Medal and the Norton Medlicott Medal For Services to History. He is a Fellow of the British Academy, The Royal Society of Literature, The Royal Society of Arts and the Royal Historical Society.
