The Missing Tudors: black people in 16th-century England  
Always glad when this subject gets a bit of press (or re-press, anyway):

http://www.historyextra.com/feature/missing-tudors-black-people-16th-century-england

(Article originally from July 2012, but - it seems - recently added to the website; would be better with some citations.)

I feel like I was just reading about Mary Fillis recently; I wish I could remember where...

Have you seen this blog?

Medieval People of Color in European Art History

It's amazing, and awesome, and there are tons of resources in addition to lots of pictures of paintings and engravings and etchings and things.

I have, yes! (But thank you for sharing it, if I hadn't!) It's great - I'm so glad it exists.

Thanks for pointing this out--I think I'll share it with the girl, since they're doing the Middle Ages soon at school... and then hopefully the renaissance? One would assume!

Yes - although my section of history fell behind (we spent a *lot* of time on both Egypt and the major world religions unit), so when we picked up with another teacher next year, half of us never actually covered the medieval period! Oops.

I'm pretty sure I never got much in the way of world history at all. American history, yes. The rest? No recollection! And American history seemed to stop after WWII... I definitely remember the Oregon Trail and the California missions.

We were always *supposed* to get to the late twentieth century in US History, but we never did. I think we made it to WWII, but to be honest I may be confusing that with World History (I remember reading All Quiet on the Western Front).
