BBC Radio Stoke Community Journalist, Bongi Msimanga, has recorded an impassioned message for the Chamber on the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.
The video forms part of our monthly SDG spotlight, with a focus on SDG 5, Gender Equality and SDG 10, Reduce Inequality throughout March.
In the video, which can be streamed now on the Chambers’ YouTube channel, Bongi said: “One thing I am really passionate about is talking about racism. I’ve got a podcast with my husband called ‘It’s not always black and white’ which is about us being an interracial couple.
“What our podcast does that you don’t see in normal society is it makes it very clear how important it is to talk about race – but also, if there is an uncomfortable subject to talk about, it’s important to have those conversations.”
