Just found this great book on Kindle about the first known Black Naval Officer. Trying to put together a museum/university project on little known black historical figures and was really impressed by the research, and the cracking narrative. Well worth a view for a quid.

Welcome to the forum and thanks for your post.

We discussed another black man who made good in England in the 18th century on another thread - can't find it now! - but here's a bit about him that might add to your research.
