No. Angela Bassett is not 'a black queen.' She's an absolutely atrocious narrator and should stay clear away from this job as an altruistic endeavor - i.e., that she should ruin another, otherwise, decent production with her extremely affected breathy obnoxious voice. What she adds to the story is trite at best and annoying, most always. I really like her as an actress. Honestly. But, she is an absolutely horrific narrator...one of the worst that I've ever heard in my entire six-decade life....and if you're reading this review, Angela Bassett, STAY AWAY from narrating. Please.
