Subject: 15.0127 Shakespeare Blacks and Jews
Comment:        RE: SHK 15.0127 Shakespeare Blacks and Jews

Ruth Ross (among others) mentions that "Africans had been expelled from
England during [Shakespeare's] time."

Could I have a little more detail on that? Particularly as to when and
why. And when did the policy change back (presumably with the
development of slavery in the West Indian and American colonies)?

Thanks,
don
