Description

As the British Empire struggles to keep its colonial possessions, Nigerian Tunji Sowande quietly breaks through multiple barriers to become Britain’s first Black judge. A fine concert singer and keen cricket follower, he muses on international politics and history as they affect the Black world from Africa to the USA and Britain, from the point of view of one who would rather watch sports and spread love and peace through the medium of song. Recalling heroic sporting achievements alongside epoch-defining political events, Tayo Aluko delivers a 'brilliantly put together history lesson delivered as art' (DirtAndCandy.com).
