Speaking up for black women in today’s Guardian Review

Guardian Review      Click on link for piece.

My opinion piece in today’s Guardian Review about 1980s arts activism, black women writers and Mr Loverman.

‘There is still work to do. Three decades on, black women are still rarely in positions of power. We remain the creatives and not the career makers. We are chosen but do not choose, and the elite networks of power continue to perpetuate themselves.’

I appeared on BBC R4′s Loose Ends on Saturday to talk about Mr Loverman. It’s available via BBC iPlayer for another six days. Other guests were Martin Clunes, Arthur Smith (legend), Warwick Davis (Star Wars/ Harry Potter) and John Otway (hysterically funny). Hosted by Clive Anderson. Lovely, funny people.
