Just an Ordinary Lawyer
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Nigerian Tunji Sowande quietly breaks through multiple barriers to become Britains first black judge in 1978. Also a fine concert singer and keen cricket lover, he muses on international politics and history, as they affect the black world across Africa, 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 follows the multi award-winning Call Mr. Robeson with another 'brilliantly put together history lesson delivered as art' **** (Guardian).
