Fifth Noughts & Crosses novel from Malorie Blackman
The series describes an alternative history in which African people had gained a technological and organisational advantage over the European people , rather than the other way around, with Africans having made Europeans their slaves. The series takes place in an alternative 21st-century Britain. At the time of the series, slavery had been abolished for some time, but segregation, similar to the Jim Crow Laws, continues to operate to keep the crosses dark-skinned people in control of the noughts lighter-skinned people. An international organisation, the Pangaean Economic Community, exists. Seeming to be similar to the United Nations in scope but similar to the European Union in powers, it is playing a role in forcing change by directives and boycotts. The book Noughts and Crosses is a dystopian fiction based in a 21st-century parallel universe. Their world, technologically at least, is similar to the one we live in today: about the same jobs, same type of government etc.
