Historian, broadcaster and film-maker David Olusoga will deliver this year's Cities Imaginaries annual lecture at the UCL Urban Laboratory, speaking about how Britain’s cities were born with a 'housing problem’ already hard wired into them.

Olusoga is a British-Nigerian historian whose recent TV series for the BBC include 'Black and British: A Forgotten History', 'The World’s War', 'A House Through Time', and the BAFTA winning 'Britain’s Forgotten Slave Owners'. David is also the author of Black and British: A Forgotten History which was awarded both the Longman-History Today Trustees Award and the PEN Hessell-Tiltman Prize. He writes for The Guardian, alongside columns in The Observer and BBC History Magazine. He is also one of the three presenters on the BBC's landmark Arts series 'Civilizations'.
