Blackamoores: Africans in Tudor England with speaker Dr Onyeka Nubia. 

This lecture will present Onyeka Nubia's findings from the 250,000 plus artifacts and documents that he gathered during more than 25 years of research. Some of this evidence was collected from archives and parish records across England and Europe. 

About the speaker: 

Onyeka has written three novels, The Black Prince, Waiting to Explode and The Phoenix, which was awarded the 2009 African Achievers award for Communication and Media. He has also written three plays and his recent book, Blackamoores: Africans in Tudor England, their Presence, Status and Origins, is a ground breaking historical publication that highlights the significance of the presence of African people in Tudor England.
