"And like my hero, I struggle against who people think I am when they see the colour of my skin, and who I really am."
Charles Ignatius Sancho is having his portrait painted by Thomas Gainsborough.
Born on a slave ship in 1729, educated in secret, he may not be the man that would expect to be painted by Gainsborough, but maybe his story is much more than you could imagine.
Sancho's life was one of surprising, moving and funny twists.
A friend of David Garrick, he became a composer, actor, anti-slavery campaigner and the first Black person of African origin to vote in Britain.
This is the story of man who lived a remarkable and ground-breaking life.
In this revealing, funny, one-man show, one of the UK's finest actors Paterson Joseph inhabits the curious, daringly determined life of Charles Ignatius Sancho.
