‘This is the book that inspired me to write The Secret Diaries of Charles Ignatius Sancho. Gretchen Gerzina shows that many Black Georgians (including Sancho) existed in British society and the history of Black Britons started long before the Windrush Generation. The richness of Black experience in Britain is brought to life here with wonderful historical detail and fantastic writing’
