“The single story creates stereotypes, and the problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue, but that they are incomplete. They make one story become the only story.”Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
A story seldom told, is of the contribution generations of black and brown people made to British society.
Whilst you may know that black and brown people have made Britain great from the moment they set foot on this ‘green and pleasant’ land, the stories we see on our screens tell us otherwise.

Help us change the story.
