#12 Changing the world with Barbara Blake Hannah, UK's first black TV Journalist

The Feminist Lens

Peris and Nina spoke to the earthmoving, world-changer, politician, film maker, festival organiser and cultural consultant, who started off her extensive career by breaking through the glass ceiling of 1960s UK tv broadcasting, as the first ever black person to report the news on UK TV, Barbara Blake Hannah. More than 50 years later, the Press Gazette has created the Barbara Blake-Hannah Award to celebrate upcoming journalists from ethnic minority backgrounds - in the hope of inspiring others in the future. Wow. Barbara I cannot begin to express how excited and grateful we are to talk to you and for you to give us some of your precious time and wisdom. We started Women for Wanawake and this podcast The Feminist Lens, to inspire and empower, and to educate, break down barriers and have conversations that will change the world.
