Miranda Kaufmann & Danell Jones
Racial Attitudes in British History

An enthralling investigation into racial attitudes in British history. Miranda Kaufmann’s Black Tudors uncovers the daily lives of ten free Africans in Renaissance England, fundamentally challenging preconceptions of Tudor and Jacobean attitudes to race. Danell Jones, meanwhile, shows us the streets of Edwardian London through the eyes of one remarkably resilient writer who wanted to change the way the world thought about Africans – and the many prejudices and setbacks he encountered in doing so. What changed in the intervening four centuries, and why? Grab your tickets to find out.
