AudioFile Earphones Award
Corrie James is a wonderful host and guide to little-known aspects of Black History in Tudor England. (Her performance reminds me of the warm, intelligent narration of Alastair Cooke.) Corrie engagingly presents the biographic details of the lives of ten Black Tudors, within the larger social and political context. Listen to a sound clip and read AudioFile’s full review.
