In collaboration with BLK Brit, we explored the stereotypes and common mistaken beliefs associated with Black Britons beyond London. Whether you're from another city, or a rural area, Black communities outside the capital are often grouped together. The project sees Jahmel Coleman and Mel McKoy, two established individuals within their respective fields sharing their unique, often-overlooked Black British experiences.
Meet Mel McKoy - International DJ and Scientist from Milton Keynes.
