Join historian and broadcaster David Olusoga as he presents this special Durham Book Festival commission. David will write about and share his experiences of growing up in Gateshead and his subsequent journey to reconnect with the North East of England as an adult.

David Olusoga is a British-Nigerian historian, BAFTA-winning broadcaster, and filmmaker. His most recent book, the award-winning Black and British, tells the rich and revealing story of the long relationship between the British Isles and the people of Africa and the Caribbean. It was published to accompany his landmark BBC Two series. David’s other recent work with the BBC includes the series A House Through Time and Civilisations, which he presented alongside Mary Beard and Simon Schama.

Chaired by Professor Tom Lawson, Northumbria University
