Ogo & Claire (of Akwa Baby) on Black History Month 2021

Monday, 25 October

As we reach the end of Black History Month in the UK, Zoe & Georgia are joined by Ogo & Claire to reflect.

As well as being married with two (soon-to-be three!) children, Ogo & Claire have founded Akwa Baby. Together, the four discuss representation, school curriculums, microaggressions, and so much more.
