‘The British Empire was trying desperately to hold on to its colonial possessions by any means … and the foul would often override the fair.’

Recalling heroic sporting achievements alongside epoch-defining political events, Tayo Aluko follows the multi-award-winning Call Mr. Robeson with another ‘brilliantly put together history lesson delivered as art.’ (Guardian)
