Quintessential Voices is Britain's biggest conversation, celebrating women of colour. Get ready to smile, laugh, cry and learn after listening to the stories which focus on the lives and journeys of black, asian and minority ethnic women in Britain today.
Some of those voices will be famous ones, others will be voices you might never have heard, yet each one of them will entertain you. My guests will be drawn from across the generations, and they’ll come from all walks of life. But the things they’ll have in common are that they’ll inspire you and motivate you. And - above all - their stories will rewrite the book on what it means to be quintessentially British.
Hosted by UK journalist & broadcaster, Marverine Cole (www.twitter.com/TVMarv and www.facebook.com/TVMarv); Produced by Raging Brum.

Khembe Clarke, natural hair campaigner & entrepreneur
Khembe Clarke talks about her campaigning around natural hair, at her fourth annual RETURN TO YOUR ROOTS HAIR, HEALTH AND BEAUTY expo in Birmingham, U.K.
I really appreciate this podcast. It's so good to hear about the UK-based women of colour who, despite being in the public eye (personalities, artists, media folk etc.) aren't celebrated enough in the mainstream. Best of all, the subjects are allowed to talk and unfold, and just be themselves. Keep up the excellent work.
I know I'm biased but loved listening to this. More, more, more please Marv 😘
Lovely !well done
