Olivette Otele is an historian who is currently Professor of History of Slavery at Bristol University and Vice-President of the Royal Historical Society. She is the first black female history professor in the UK.
Her most recent book, ‘African Europeans: An Untold History explores a history that has been long overlooked, shedding light on questions very much alive today―on racism, identity, citizenship, power and resilience.
She talks to Krishnan about her thoughts on a summer of race protests, the complex idea of imposter syndrome and the power of young people.
