YOUNG OTHELLO THEATRICAL READINGS
Young Othello is a drama set within an ancient African kingdom untouched by slavery or colonialism. It explores the natural and the mystical world to highlight human strength and weakness, and emphasises the uncontrollable passage of time. As the story unfolds, greed, jealousy and the thirst for power bring about the destruction of a nation and provide us with a deeper understanding of one of Shakespeare's most maligned characters.

A Forgotten Heritage: Blackamoores in Tudor England
Every Wednesday 1st Nov-
This course is the first of its kind: where students will be able to explore the presence, status and origins of Africans in Tudor England through a specially designed programme. The
Blackamoores course is facilitated by Narrative Eye and hosted by the BCA. During this course students will have an opportunity to carry out detailed investigations based on the pioneering work of authors such as Onyeka. In his book Blackamoores (2013), he spent over twenty years researching the presence, status and origins of Africans in England. His work proved that Africans were not all slaves and that many came from strong and vibrant civilisations. We will discover that not only was this the time of William Shakespeare, Henry VIII and Elizabeth I, but also people of African descent such as Mary Fillis of Morisco, Henrie Anthonie Jetto and Anne Vause. This six week programme will empower students to help write the missing pages of history. Students will be assessed and awarded a certificate of achievement upon successful completion.
Venue: Black Cultural Archives, 1 Windrush Square, Brixton, London SW2 1EF
