Welcome to the latest episode of Londonist Out Loud, a podcast about London, as recently recommended by The Telegraph.
Londonist Out Loud is presented and produced by N Quentin Woolf. Today’s guests are:
- Dr. Miranda Kaufmann, Historian and Researcher specialising in the history of black people in the UK
- Oliver Ross, The Reverend of St Olave's Church
- Phil Manning, St Olave's Church manager
The podcast takes place inside the historical St Olave's Church and explores the history of black people in London. Dr. Miranda Kaufmann explains how she reconstructed the stories of black men and women who lived in London during the 16th and 17th centuries by searching through the parish records and registers.
Find out the connection between the St Olave's Church statues and the history of slavery in London, and learn the lesser-known facts about the capital's slave trade.
