Black Europeans - features hosted by The British Library

Black Europeans:

A series of features guest-curated by Mike Phillips for the British Library Online Gallery.

Popular versions of history have all too often airbrushed out the contribution of non-Europeans to Western arts and sciences. In recent years, however, scholars have begun to challenge the idea that race or ethnicity is a barrier which can stop individuals from participating in any culture they choose. In Europe this has encouraged a new drive to explore and understand the hidden or ignored contribution of people of African descent to the mainstream of European culture and society.

The figures featured in Black Europeans – Alexander Pushkin, Alexandre Dumas, George Polgreen Bridgetower, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor and John Archer.

The exhibition contains images, sound and historical interpretation. Mike Phillips' features on each 'Black European' can also be viewed, saved and/or printed in pdf format.
