James Bond Is England Itself

I am black and British, born in England, a citizen who often feels more like a subject. Bond films have always been a useful way for me to relate to the nation I belong to. Bond is an English cultural staple that I've always understood; he is as itinerant as I feel but still, forever, tied to England.
