THE BLACK BRITISH NETWORK
In light of the killing of Black people across 2020 there was a groundswell of awareness and momentum focused on the experience of the Black community globally and how we bring about positive change.
A poignant moment that caused for the whole world to look inwardly and reflect on all of our feelings towards the Black community, the reality of the Black communities perceived position in society, the frustration informed by both overt and covert racist acts and the lack of economic advancement through the years due to systemic racism and prejudice that exists both within the workplace and in the wider society.
There is hope that for one moment, people will no longer be afraid to listen to the Black community, accept the realities of the inequalities experienced and work with us to usher in long lasting change. On top of this, there needs to be a united effort to focus time and resources on ensuring we strengthen, support and uplift the Black community who have had to suffer in silence for too long; to make sure that many years from now we are not having this same conversation again.
