Introducing The First 12 Speakers at The Black Ballad Weekender

The Black Ballad Weekender is going to be the ultimate lifestyle festival for black women this summer. 100 black women will be speaking and sharing their experiences across more than 40 panels, workshops, interviews & keynotes spanning careers, beauty, health, motherhood, Black British literature, pop culture, money and much more.

From New York Times best sellers & award-winning professionals, to our favourite creators & those teaching us how to advocate for ourselves, some of the very best will be at #BBWeekender! We’ll be sharing all of speakers over the next few months as we get closer to the festival. But for now, here are the first 12 speakers you can expect to see on 23rd - 24th August:
