But where are you *really* from? Three actors and creatives who have their fingers on the pulse discuss what’s really got them veXed. Join Sharon, Stephenson, Vanessa and guests on generation veX as they chat about race, culture and belonging. They attempt to navigate the confusing landscape of modern millennial identity, all with the help of some seriously good books.
In this episode, Sharon, Stephenson and Vanessa reflect on their conversation with writer Derek Owusu about Safe: On Black British Men Reclaiming Space, a collection of essays which he edited and contributed to, as well as his new book, That Reminds Me, an exploration of identity, belonging and mental health. They chat about family, uni and safe spaces for Black British men.
Safe: On Black British Men Reclaiming Space edited by Derek Owusu is published by Trapeze. That Reminds Me by Derek Owusu is published by #Merky Books. Available at all good bookshops and online.
