Oh, BBC, why this day of all days?

Britain's first black community in Elizabethan London

"The reign of Elizabeth I saw the beginning of Britain's first black
community. It's a fascinating story for modern Britons, writes
historian Michael Wood." ...

Lovely illumination of six herald trumpeters on horseback, and one was
black, John Blanke (!).  Discussion of late Tudor times and the
variety of types of people (some servants, many other types, no
slaves), and of times shortly after.
