In Search of Black History - With Bonnie Greer

Bonnie Greer uncovers the lives of people of African descent that don’t fit with the accepted history taught by Western Civilisations. From saints, to philosophers, to warrior women and king’s heralds, these subjects’ stories are brought to life in an imaginative eight part series. Made with production company Chalk & Blade.

Episode 4 - The fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. The Real Thing

For the first time in European art we see a portrait of a named black person.  John Blanke - celebrated trumpeter and herald to the Tudor kings of England. Bonnie is given extremely rare access to a true treasure - the Westminster Tournament Roll.  This fragile 60 foot-long painting is hardly ever unrolled, but Bonnie is allowed to see it - and comes face-to-face with this incredible Black Tudor.
