Bright and early yesterday morning I headed to the Colourful Radio studio, which is tucked away inside the Oval Cricket Ground, to have a chat with Lester Holloway. He'd got in touch after reading my last blog, on Elizabeth I and the 'Blackamoors': the Deportation that never was, and wanted to hear more about Africans in Tudor England. You can listen to our conversation below. Do add a comment and join in with the debate!
