David Olusoga is the author of The World’s War (Head of Zeus, 2014), co-author of The Kaiser’s Holocaust: Germany’s Forgotten Genocide and the Colonial Roots of Nazism (Faber & Faber 2010), and was a contributor to the Oxford Companion to Black British History. He is currently writing a new history of slavery, 5000 Years a Slave (Head of Zeus), and White Slavery & the Black War, a new history of the British colonisation of Tasmania. David is a regular writer for The Guardian and The Observer and has written for The Nation and BBC History Magazine.

David Olusoga presented the major BBC2 series A Black History of Britain, documenting life from slavery to the twentieth century, from the Windrush Generation, to the country today. And his contribution to landmark BBC Arts series Civilisations explores contact, trade, interaction, empire and race.

Following David’s Liverpool-based BBC series A House Through Time David Olusoga moved on to tell the story of a Georgian end-of-terrace property in Ravensworth Terrace, Newcastle, part of his native Tyneside. Starting the story from around the time the house was built in 1824, David explored the often complex lives of the owners and inhabitants from pre-Victorian times right up to the present day – with some extraordinary revelations along the way.

David will be interviewed by Storyhouse’ very own Chair of the board David Watson. David is currently the Executive Director of Audiences and Media at National Museums Liverpool, where his responsibilities include leading a talented team across exhibitions, digital, marketing and brand, fundraising, PR and communications, strategic and creative partnerships, and audience insight. He is also founder and creative director of The Great British Gala, creative director of MikMen and a trustee of One Dance UK, the national body for dance, while previous roles include Director of Brand and Advocacy for Birmingham Royal Ballet and Head of Digital / Digital Editor in Chief for Hull City of Culture 2017.
