Full marks to Tamarind for their excellent Black Stars series. Children need positive role models and this, precisely, is what the series will provide. Highly recommended.
Great. A brilliant addition to the series with a lovely, contemporary cover. Covers so much ground: Black actors in the UK and their experience of racism, emigrating to the UK, etc. An exclusive interview too!
A very engaging biography of this well-known actor. I really like the nice new modern covers for this series. Great!
