This presentation delves into the Tudor era, unveiling narratives of black individuals. From the reign of Henry VII to Elizabeth I, it explores their diverse roles, and contributions to Tudor England. Profiles of figures like Mary Fillis and Reasonable Blackman showcase their resilience and cultural significance. The talk will touch on the interconnectedness of Tudor England with African History, global trade and exploration. By reclaiming these lost stories, it will advocate for a more inclusive understanding of history. By acknowledging and celebrating the presence of Black Tudors, the presentation encourages a broader perspective on the complexities of the past and its lasting impact.
