The Tudor period remains a source of timeless fascination, with endless novels, TV programmes and films depicting the period in myriad ways. And yet our image of the Tudor era remains overwhelmingly white. This ground-breaking and provocative new book seeks to redress the balance: revealing not only how black presence in Tudor England was far greater than has previously been recognised, but that Tudor conceptions of race were far more complex than we have been led to believe. Onyeka Nubia's original research shows that Tudors from many walks of life regularly interacted with people of African descent, both at home and abroad, revealing a genuine pragmatism towards race and acceptance of difference. Nubia also rejects the influence of the 'Curse of Ham' myth on Tudor thinking, persuasively arguing that many of the ideas associated with modern racism are in fact relatively recent developments. England's Other Countrymen is a bravura and eloquent forgotten history of diversity and cultural exchange, and casts a new light on our own attitudes towards race.

Expanding upon the 2017 Radio 4 series ‘Britain’s Black Past’, this book presents those stories and analyses through the lens of a recovered past. Even those who may be familiar with some of the materials will find much that they had not previously known, and will be introduced to people, places, and stories brought to light by new research. In a time of international racial unrest and migration, it is important not to lose sight of similar situations that took place in an earlier time. In chapters written by scholars, artists, and independent researchers, readers will learn of an early musician, the sales of slaves in Scotland, the grave—now a shrine—of a black enslaved boy left to die in Morecombe Bay, of a country estate owned by a mixed-race slave owner, and of the two strikingly different people who lived in a Bristol house that is now a museum. Black sailors, political activists, memoirists, appear in these pages, but the book also re-examines living history, in the form of modern plays, television programmes, and genealogical sleuthing. Through them, Britain’s Black Past is not only presented anew, but shown to be very much alive in our own time.

This highly original book opens up the almost entirely neglected area of the black African presence in Western Europe during the Renaissance. Covering history, literature, art history and anthropology, it investigates a whole range of black African experience and representation across Renaissance Europe, from various types of slavery to black musicians and dancers, from real and symbolic Africans at court to the views of the Catholic Church, and from writers of African descent to Black African criminality. Their findings demonstrate the variety and complexity of black African life in fifteenth and sixteenth-century Europe, and how it was affected by firmly held preconceptions relating to the African continent and its inhabitants, reinforced by Renaissance ideas and conditions. Of enormous importance both for European and American history, this book mixes empirical material and theoretical approaches, and addresses such issues as stereotypes, changing black African identity, and cultural representation in art and literature.

This book is comprised of the proceedings of the First and Only Conference on Negritude ever held in the Americas. The Conference which gathered intellectuals of African descent from various countries of the new continent was held in Miami in 1987 around the theme "Negritude, Ethnicity and Afro Cultures in the Americas." The towering presence of Aimé Césaire and Léopold Sédar Senghor, side by side on a public forum for the first and, most likely, the last time since The First World Festival of Negro Arts, hosted by Senegal in 1966, bestowed a solemn summit quality on this impressive gathering. The untimely death of Cheikh Anta Diop, the scientist , Alioune Diop, the strategist, Léon Damas, the uncompromisingly anti-colonialist writer deprived the Conference participants of their physical presence, but their spirit hovered over the entire city during these memorable three days. Since the conference, death also robbed the Black World of the brilliant minds of Lelia Gonzalez, St. Clair Drake and Alex Haley who participated. Men of letters and political pioneers, Césaire and Senghor have ineradicably marked world history. At the close of this millenium, their incomparable intellectual contribution has come to symbolize the divergent continuity of the two powerful currents of thought launched, at the beginning of this century, by Booker T. Washington, Ida B. Wells, W.E.B. DuBois, Marcus Garvey, Jean Price Mars, Anténor Firmin (and many less known African men and women thinkers) in what some have termed the Great Debate.

This book documents Rashidi's inspired Global Journeys in Search of the African Presence. This unique travelogue records his country-by-country travels in Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, Russia, the Pacific and Caribbean Islands, and Central and South America. It also recounts his day-by-day encounters with people, historical markers, art, and cultural practices that both separate and unite Blacks around the world. It's a richly illustrated text with colorful photos primarily taken by the author. The photos do a wonderful job of highlighting the author's pursuit of global Africa. They also present readers with the same stunning visual African presence that Rashidi found and still finds as he continues his travels today. He has visited more than 100 countries, long ago surpassing the 60 that Rogers, his inspiration, visited.
