Tue 5 Feb 2019

What is the experience of Black men in Britain? How expansive is their representation in the media? Does it even begin to capture the complexity of their existence? How many Black men are being failed by not being seen? SAFE: On Black British Men Reclaiming Space is an anthology that seeks to answer those questions. Including essays from leading writers, musicians, actors and journalists, it assembles a range of powerful reflections exploring the Black British male experience and what it really means to reclaim and hold space in the landscape of British society. 

Derek Owusu, Mostly Lit podcast host and editor, is joined by Okechukwu Nzelu and Nels Abbey as he leads a conversation that embraces family, mental health, the LGBT community and grime music.Please note that panellist Stephen Morrison-Burke has now been replaced by Nels Abbey, author of the recently-released Think Like a White Man
