A new collection of photographs exhibited in 2008 at City Hall, London by photographer John Ferguson,
A moment to honour the achievements of Britain's black community across the generations.
From music to law, education to sport, medicine and celebrity, John has photographed Black Britons who have made a unique contribution to UK life. From instantly recognisable faces like Frank Bruno and Lenny Henry, to musicians like Ms Dynamite and Estelle, to cabinet ministers like Paul Boateng and Baroness Amos.
Black Brittania reveals the diverse face of modern Britain. From premiership soccer referees to songwriters, WW2 veterans to tennis players, farmers to poets, John shows how black people are succeeding at the top level in every part of society.
