Pauline Black, at The Edinburgh International Book Festival 2011. The iconic lead singer for platinum-selling 2-tone band The Selecter, Black was the highest profile woman in a movement dominated by blokes. As the undisputed Queen of British Ska, she witnessed the good, the bad and the ugly. Born in 1953 of Anglo-Jewish/Nigerian parentage, she was adopted by a white, working class Essex family but was always made to feel an outsider. Black by Design follows her rise to fame and recollections of the 2-tone phenomenon allied to the search for her real parents. Credit Geraint Lewis
