Kenya’s Nubians: Then & Now

Kenya’s Nubians: Then & Now is the first in a series of books from Greg Constantine’s six-year project on global statelessness called, Nowhere People. Brought to Kenya while serving for the British in the King’s African Rifles and having now lived in Kenya for over 100 years, the Nubian community has historically been unrecognized and one of Kenya’s most invisible and under-represented communities. Following exhibitions in Nairobi and in London in 2010, the book combines rare, historical photographs of the Nubian community in Kenya dating back to 1908 with Constantine’s recent work on the community’s struggle for recognition. The book chronicles the community’s proud history in Kenya yet also shows all that the community has lost as a result of statelessness as well as any number of other injustices.
