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.
