This week, Nadine Talks is joined by Nadine White (Twitter: @Nadine_Writes) - award-nominated journalist from the Huffington Post, and former journalist with the Voice, Britain's largest black newspaper.
In this episode, we discuss what it's like to be black journalists in the UK, the systemic racism issues in the British media, and what we hope the industry will do to address its inequalities on race.
I'll be frank - I planned to have this episode all laid out, but as each hour, and each day, passes by I feel new emotions.
So, today, I thought I'd share how I felt today - within a specific time period. I thought I'd share what my emotions are at this moment, and what my thoughts are at this moment.
Whether you listen or not is up to you, but thank you for spending the time to read this.
I discuss Black people in journalism, the white hierarchy of journalism, what it is like for Black British people living through this time, and what white people need to do to help.
#BlackLivesMatter. Don't forget it.
