This does open a new view on how we look at English history and it might even make some of us look at our self a bit different. Rewriting the missing pages of history is no easy task, but would we be able to accept it? This is a subject that most of us can't deal with and some don't even want to, but it's a chance for the up and coming to see their ancestors light in the past and let it guide them to the future.

Each chapter of this book intertwines the history that I have grown up reading and watching. Now I have been able to see a fuller picture. This picture includes my ancestors, who have played an integral part in Tudor/English History.
I am grateful to Onyeka for his Inspiring efforts as my son will now have the opportunity to be empowered by the fruitful history of his people in the country that he calls home.

I found `The Blackamoores' to be a refreshing change to the image of every African being a slave in English history.

The book gave facts in a new style and the fine art used forces you to take a second look at what these 'Blackamoores' were like.

Informative, inspirational and thought provoking are but a few words I can think of to explain this book.

Well done!

One for the scholars.

Fascinating insight into narrative rarely told in history books when looking back at the Tudor period. Consequently this book provides a more holistic view into Europe during the Tudor period.

The cover page is a story in itself. Dignity, Grace, Poise...some words that certain scholars would deny could even be applied to the African by the European, during Tudor times.

This book opens up as many questions as it answers.
Truths of how England developed into a "dignified" nation are effectively challenged in this book. The contributors to her greatness were certainly not all slave owners, just as the Africans who arrived in England were NOT all slaves.

This book overturns many entrenched ideas about the history of our home.
It must be appreciated that work like this must have taken years to compile.

Congratulations to the author on a fine body of work.
