Feeling her Way focuses on the vocal experimentation of five outstanding Black female musicians as they embody feelings of power, freedom and vulnerability. Awarding the accolade, the jury said: 'Sonia Boyce proposes … another reading of histories through the sonic. In working collaboratively with other Black women, she unpacks a plenitude of silenced stories.'
