Middle Temple Historical Society: England’s Other Countrymen

Dr. Nubia will elucidate how concepts of “race” in the Tudor Period were far more nuanced and more progressive to use today’s parlance than we previously have been led to believe. He will speak to some themes within his book, England’s Other Countrymen, Black Tudor Society, that evidence that many of the ideas associated with modern racist ideology are in fact relatively recent development, and what lessons the past can teach us today about combating racism.
