By tracing the largely forgotten eighteenth-century migration of elite mixed-race individuals from Jamaica to Great Britain, this volume reinterprets the evolution of British racial ideologies as a matter of negotiating family membership. Daniel Livesay follows the hundreds of mixed race children who crossed the ocean for educational opportunities, apprenticeships, marriage, or refuge.
