Black Tudors (e)Black Britain: The Tudors

Miranda Kaufmann

Sat 14th Oct 2017, 1.30-2.45pm

William Morris Tent, Festival Site


Miranda Kaufmann reveals the absorbing stories of some of the Africans who lived free in Tudor England. Following on from David Olusoga’s BBC2 series and book Black and British: A Forgotten History, Miranda brings their stories viscerally to life with unprecedented insight. A groundbreaking, seminal work, Black Tudors challenges the accepted narrative that racial slavery was all but inevitable.

Miranda Kaufman will be in conversation with Judith Bryan, Creative Writing Lecturer, University of Roehampton. Judith Bryan’s work includes Bernard and the Cloth Monkey (Saga Prize 1997)..
