The British media sometimes offers a very negative opinion of Black women, with stories of babymothers, bling materialism and moral laxity.

But there is another side to that coin.

There is a breed of confident, conservative, ambitious Black women in Britain who are excelling compared to their male counterparts, outnumbering them in the professional world by ten to one, and they're refusing to compromise on their moral and ethical perspectives.

Theologian and broadcaster Robert Beckford talks to the three young women who make up the gospel trio Nu Life, and use their story as a vehicle to explore the motivation and beliefs of Black women in Britain today.

Other interviewees include the millionaire businesswoman Yvonne Thompson, writer and broadcaster Bonnie Greer, academic Dr Valentina Alexander and sociologist Dr Lez Henry.
