An important and timely anthology of black British writing, edited and curated by the authors of the highly acclaimed, ground-breaking Slay In Your Lane.
Slay in Your Lane Presents: Loud Black Girls features essays from the diverse voices of twenty established and emerging black British writers. Being a loud black girl isn't about the volume of your voice; and using your voice doesn't always mean speaking the loudest or dominating the room.
Most of the time it's simply existing as your authentic self in a world that is constantly trying to tell you to minimise who you are. Now that we've learnt how to Slay in our Lanes, what's next?
Yomi Adegoke and Elizabeth Uviebinene, authors of the acclaimed Slay in Your Lane: The Black Girl Bible, invite the next generation of black women in Britain - authors, journalists, actors, activists and artists - to explore what it means to them to exist in these turbulent times. From assessing the cultural impact of Marvel's Black Panther, to celebrating activism in local communities.
From asking how we can secure the bag while staying true to our principles, or how we can teach our daughters to own their voices, to reclaiming our culinary heritage, the essays in Loud Black Girls offer funny touching and ultimately insightful perspectives on the question of 'What's Next?'
