1Xtra Talks with Richie Brave
2020's Silver Linings
Tuesday, 15 December
Richie & Shahlaa look back at the moments that brought us joy in this tough year. They're joined by guests from the worlds of entertainment, news and community to chat through some of the high points of 2020.
Broadcaster Chanté Joseph enjoyed seeing strong black couples in Love Island and Love Is Blind. And we're excited to see an entirely black management team at the brand new 0207 Def Jam label.
Guardian journalist Damien Gayle's been finding the light in a pretty awful year of news. The global Black Lives Matter protests were incredible to see, and we're chatting about the mixed opinions of Kamala Harris, the first black woman vice president of the USA.
And IIzin Akhabau, online editor at The Voice newspaper, is celebrating moments when the community has come together - from providing free school meals in October half term to Black Pound Day.
