Black Lives Matter
We love to celebrate people doing incredible things and this week we’re shining a spotlight on the lovely founders of Melanin Markets, Bianca Taylor and Kelly Morgan. They set up @melaninmarketsmcr as a celebration of black british culture and to spotlight Black owned businesses in the city. They recently had their biggest event yet at the iconic Royal Exchange Theatre an we can’t wait to see what they do next 💫
This week we’re aging a spotlight on the lovely Judi Love 💡✨ This Queen 👑 is a British comedian, presenter & panellist on Loose Women. As well as being a familiar face in the British entertainment industry, she uses her platform to highlight important issues including racial inequality!👏 @1JudiLove
