Episode 64 – Yasuke the African Samurai
Welcome everyone to Mythstorie, a podcast about myths and History. Today Bryent and Cammy discuss the legendary Yasuke, an African man who ended up in feudal Japan and became a samurai. Rest in peace Chadwick Boseman, we would have loved to have seen your depiction of this figure.
You can check out a lot more on Yasuke and the children's book based on him here One correction, I said that the film The Last Samurai is set in the 18th century, I meant to say the 1800s.
