Synopsis

Hiya! Alison Hammond here! I love getting to know all about different people and I'll tell you a secret . . . sometimes people we don't know much about are the most interesting of all! Which is really what this book is all about.



Let me ask you a question: How many Black people can you name from our history? Mary Seacole? Ira Aldridge? George Bridgetower? Pablo Fanque? Walter Tull? Have you heard of these people?



Yes? That's great! But if you haven't, don't worry, you're not alone, which is why I'm so excited to tell you all about them. Because the people in this book should be totally famous given the AMAZING things they've done! And we're not going to stop in the past, I'll introduce you to people making waves right here and now!



From sportspeople to scientists, activists to musicians, politicians to writers, we're going to meet a whole bunch of AWESOME people who have helped shape the world we live in. So, are ready for you a journey Black in time?? Course you are, let's go!

Known for her quick wit, outrageous presenting style and infectious laugh, Alison Hammond has been a much-loved fixture on British television for two decades. She joined This Morning in 2002 and has since secured some of the most watched - and loved - celebrity interviews ever. She's tap- danced with Renee Zellweger, rapped with Will Smith, jammed with Russell Crowe, and been serenaded by Hugh Jackman. In 2021, she became one of This Morning's main hosts, alongside Dermot O'Leary, and appeared on a new BBC Saturday-night primetime entertainment show, I Can See Your Voice, alongside fellow judges Amanda Holden and Jimmy Carr, and host Paddy McGuinness. From her rise to fame on Channel 4's Big Brother in 2002, to her appearances on I'm a Celebrity . . . Get Me Out of Here!, Strictly Come Dancing and Celebrity Great British Bake Off, Alison's warmth, honesty and joy have made her one of the most popular presenters on TV today.
