On Black Tudors: The Untold Story: 

I wrote Black Tudors because I wanted to share the fascinating stories of Africans in Tudor England that I had uncovered with the public. I wanted to show that black people had been living in England for far longer than many people imagined, that they were free, not enslaved, and how this Black history is inextricably intertwined with British history.

It’s overwhelming to have been shortlisted for such a prestigious prize, which over the years has been won by so many historians I revere and admire. That the prize is awarded to books considered both scholarly and readable is particularly gratifying, because combining those two qualities was exactly what I was trying to achieve with Black Tudors.
