'England's Other Countrymen' - A talk and book signing with Dr Onyeka Nubia

Event Type: Local / Community

Takes Place: 11th October 2019

Time: 3.30pm

Venue: The Mary Rose

Description: Join us for a talk and book signing with Dr Onyeka Nubia! 'England’s Other Countrymen: Black Tudor Society' - rethinking diversity, understanding England's past. 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. Tickets include: - 1 hour lecture by Dr Onyeka Nubia followed by Q&A - A copy of 'England’s Other Countrymen: Black Tudor Society', which the author will sign during the event - Refreshments before and after the talk, as well as viewing the new 'The Many Faces of Tudor England' exhibition plus entry to museum. The talk starts at 4.00pm, and guests should arrive at 3.30pm.

How to book: Tickets can be purchased on our website or from our Visitor Centre or museum. Pre-booking tickets is essential.
