Robin Walker

Robin Walker, also known as The Black History Man, is one of the UK’s most pre-eminent African scholars. Born in London Walker read economics at LSE before studying African World Studies under Dr Femi Biko and later Kenny Bakie. Since 1992 Robin has been lecturing in adult education, universities and conferences on African World Studies, Egyptology and Black History. Robin has authored or coauthored 13 books, including classic titles such as Classical Splendour, Roots of Black History Sword, Seal and Koran, the best study there has ever been on the Songhai Empire of West Africa (Everyday life in a West African Empire). Perhaps his most notable and critically acclaimed work is the title When We Ruled, which is hailed as the single most advanced historical synthesis on the history of Africa and its people to date. This established Walker as a leading authority on African studies in the English speaking world.
