I think if Mrs Long thought the man was African she would have said 'black man', whether that meant a person from Africa or from India. I believe she meant a person who was not pale, who had a rather swarthy or olive complexion but was of European descent. She may have just had a passing impression of someone foreign ie Jewish, it just isn't spelled out.
