181: Black Lives Matter Special with Jade Sullivan

181: Black Lives Matter Special with Jade Sullivan

By Ellie Gibson and Helen Thorn

Our guest for this episode is creative entrepreneur, activist, writer and all-round queen, Jade Sullivan! 

We talk about Jade's role in the Black Lives Matter movement, and the brilliant piece she wrote about why we must speak up. You can read the full article at motherpukka.co.uk

Jade talks about why she wants to own the title of Angry Black Woman, and why it's important to have uncomfortable conversations. We also talk about her personal experience of the UK's maternity and mental health services.
