Literary Leicester 2017: David Olusoga

Colonial Countryside are thrilled to announce that we’ve got a special guest joining us at Literary Leicester this year.

David Olusoga, British Nigerian historian, writer and presenter of BBC 2’s Britain’s Secret Slave Owners will be making an appearance at Literary Leicester,  the University of Leicester’s free literature festival.


In our previous blog post, we spoke about Olusoga’s newest project: Black and British: A Forgotten History.

Much like Colonial Countryside, Olusoga’s new project will tap into untouched primary sources and engage with oral histories. We’re looking forward to delving into archives, taking primary aged pupils with us, allowing them to explore narratives forgotten.

To find out more about Colonial Countryside check out our Twitter and a few of our blog posts.
