The Long Shadow of the British Empire: The Ongoing Legacies of Race and Class in Zambia
The Long Shadow of the British Empire explores the lived experiences of formerly colonized people in the privacy of their homes, communities, workplaces, and classrooms, the associations they created from these social interactions, and the enduring legacies of their relationships. Its examines the centrality of gender and social identity in the formation of non-western people in the Britsh Empire more generally and Northern Rhodesia specifically. Combining anthropological and autoethnographical historical methods, it describes the social, economic, political, and educational disadvantages Eurafricans-more commonly known as "Coloured" in Zambia-were subjected to on account of their mixed heritage and the legacies of these racist practices in their present-day lives.
