Paul Crooks is Black Britain’s trailblazing expert in tracing African-Caribbean family history. In order to trace his own family history, he embarked on a remarkable journey of discovery that led from suburban North London to Jamaica and ultimately back to the Gold Coast of Africa.
Paul’s acclaimed historical novel Ancestors (Arcadia books) provides a narrative on the controversial history of Britain’s transatlantic slave trade, experiences of slaves (from kidnap to working on plantations) and resistance. Subsequent speaking engagements, an appearance on Who Do You Think You Are? and national radio interviews, inspired a generation to start exploring legacies of Britain’s slave ownership.
Come and ask questions and get advice and guidance on exploring your British or African Caribbean ancestry.
