Miranda Kaufman – Off the Shelf
22nd September, 2017
Until now, the story of Africans in Tudor England has remained untold. Historian Miranda Kaufmann’s new book Black Tudors explores their lives and reveals new research. We hear the stories of John Blanke – Henry VIII’s black trumpeter – along with a sailor, a prostitute, a silk weaver, a porter and a prince. Black Tudors reassesses our national story and what it means to be British today.
