The Woman King - Sunday 13th November 5pm

This week we are taken back to Africa, the Kingdom of Dahomey in 1823 when the Agojie defended the kingdom against the Oyo Empire. 'So what?' you might say, but the Agojie were an elite unit of ALL FEMALE warriors. On one level, this is a blockbuster historic war movie, disguising a black feminist story; a big hitter with a social conscience.

"The Woman King isn't intended to be any ordinary account of history. It is a vibrant, restorative celebration of Black womanhood in all its glory" - Clarisse Loughrey, Independent.
