Episode notes

In southwest London, there is an area that plays an outsized role in British history. Today, if you walk through Clapham, you will be greeted by formerly grand black and white manor houses, now playing home to the likes of popular coffee chains.

Featuring Dr. Katie Donnington, senior lecturer in Black Caribbean and African history at the Open University.
