Yasuke was a retainer of African origin who served under the Sengoku Period Japanese daimyō Oda Nobunaga. In 1579 Yasuke arrived in Japan in the service of Italian Jesuit missionary Alessandro Valignano, Visitor of Missions in the Indies, in India. Before his passing Chadwick Bozeman was tapped to play the role of yasuke, thanks to Kings and General YouTube page, (link below), we can get to learn the story of this amazing man, the first African to don the dual swords, in a fun and captivating way!
