Much has been said about black history in 2007, with the commemoration of the abolition of the slave trade giving rise to important and extended debates about the place of black people in British – and African, Caribbean and American – history.

One aspect of this has been to sharpen our awareness of the complex and rich relationship between the lives of black people and white over the last three hundred years, and of the many ways in which blacks have managed to construct places for themselves within metropolitan society.  So Black History Month this October is building on a stronger base of public awareness than it has had for many years.
