Tola Okogwu is a blogger and author of the Daddy Do My Hair series for children. I interviewed her for the British Blacklist about her writing and her new book.
As this is the year of celebrating Windrush and what it means to and for us as Black Britons, I thought I would have a bit of a throwback moment and re-read a book that I first read over 20 years ago or so.
So, the trailer for The Hate U Give, finally dropped a few weeks ago. I'm really excited about it, are you?
Of the 1,000 or so passengers that were on board the Empire Windrush, 257 were women and 188 of them travelled alone, but curiously their presence are mostly missing from the Windrush narrative.
