1Xtra Talks with Richie Brave
Black women in music
Tuesday, 19 January
What do we lose when black women are pushed out of music?
Richie talks to Drew Dixon about her allegations of harassment and rape in the music industry, and about 'On the Record', the documentary she's made with director Amy Ziering about her experiences.
And we're broadening out the conversation: across the industry, black women aren't able to take their seats at the table, or they feel they can't shine they way they should. Richie chats to journalist Chi Chi Izundu and Loretta Andrews from Safe Management about how music suffers when black women don't have a voice. And we hear from music manager Amanda Maxwell and DJ Ruby Savage about the ways they're hoping to create some real change.
