Forget pop culture depictions of Tudor Britain: gory, backwards, white.

A pioneering and internationally recognised historian, Onyeka Nubia’s original research has lifted a veil on the relationship between historic Britain and Africa. He found that Tudors from many walks of life regularly interacted with people of African descent, both at home and abroad, and offers an entirely new perspective on otherness, colonialism, imperialism and the Black British contribution to World Wars I and II.

England’s Other Countrymen is a brave and eloquent forgotten history of diversity and cultural exchange and casts a new light on our own attitudes towards race.
