This comprehensive volume from David A. Bailey and Allison Thompson brings together key writings on the interrelationship of Britain and the English-speaking Caribbean nations, focusing specifically on the art of the Caribbean diaspora in Britain from the 1920s to today.

Combining classic writings with some newly commissioned contributions, this book explores intersecting areas of Black-British cultural production and reflects the diversity of the Black-British experience. With contributions from a range of scholars, Liberation through Imagination is an invaluable sourcebook for those interested in the rich and diverse field of postcolonial British-Caribbean art.
