This chapter discusses slavery in the context of the works of Caryl Phillips, David Dabydeen and Fred D'Aguiar. It considers these writers' differing representation of Britain's involvement in the transatlantic slave trade, and studies the ways where their return to this past may illuminate current issues in Britain today. This chapter also looks at the history of racism in Britain, introduces the term ‘black British literature’, and discusses each of the authors in detail.
