In Search of Black History with Bonnie Greer AudioBook Summary
In Search Of Black History with Bonnie Greer brings you face-to-face with the people you never knew existed. People whose stories tell us a different tale about who we all are. From the earliest glimmerings of modern humanity, up to the present day, Bonnie Greer uncovers the lives of people of African descent that don’t fit with the accepted history of Western Civilisation we’ve traditionally been taught. From saints, to philosophers, to warrior women and king’s heralds – these people’s lives have been lost, hidden and distorted down the centuries. We’ve lost the full richness and complexity of our shared histories – it’s time to fill in the gaps.
In this eight part series, playwright and former Trustee of the British Museum, Bonnie Greer, travels with us through the ages, meeting the academics and experts who are uncovering these stories at the cutting edge of historical research, and she brings their subjects’ lives to life – with an imaginative re-telling of their stories.
