Africans in Tudor Britain

The final Black and Asian Britain seminar for 2010-2011 has been moved to
13 July, Room 102 on Senate House, University of London, Russell Square, London WC1

Onyeka, 'Africans in Tudor Britain'.

We often see Tudor England through our own eyes and with our own prejudices. We project our mythology on to this time and in so doing we lose sight of what Tudor England was actually like. In particular this is evident when it comes to the question of an African presence in Tudor England. Most people ask 'oh were their Africans here? They must have been slaves!' or 'it must have been hard for them then?' This seminar will help to disprove some of these misconceptions.
