Why we need to protect spaces for young black brits at all costs

It’s nearing the end of the year and looking back it seems that we young black brits have finally paved a way for to us showcase our talent, success and most importantly a space to truly be ourselves.

It was launched this year to celebrate black British women past, present & future with arts, workshops, panels, a marketplace for all ages.
