Black Women In Britain 2020

Black Women In Britain

We know British media revolves too much around London. We know black people are 15x underpresented in British media. So where can we go to hear the stories & experiences of black women that don't live in the capital?

Welcome to Black Women in Britain, a series of articles commissioned, edited & written by black women living across England, Scotland & Wales, exclusively on Black Ballad.
