By: Andy Simons

By the mid-1930s, swing was the thing. Black British Swing unpacks the stories of how pre-Windrush players risked everything to come from Birmingham, Cardiff, and the Caribbean, to get Britain out on the floor. These swinging brothers had records in shops, tours around the UK, broadcasts on the BBC, and even a fan club. Andy Simons has been a curator at both the British Library and the Amistad Research Center, the largest African-American archives.
