Description
"The long-awaited, inspirational guide to life for a generation of black British women inspired to make lemonade out of lemons, and find success in every area of their lives. Black British women in 2018 are well past making waves - we're currently creating something of a tsunami. From authors to politicians, to entrepreneurs to artists, black women in the UK continue to thrive against all odds and well outside of the world's expectations. Women who look like us, grew up in similar places to us, talk like us, are shaping almost every societal sector, from the bottom and, finally, from all the way up at the top ̀The love child of exasperation and optimism', Slay in Your Lane springs from best friends Yomi and Elizabeth's search for a book that would address the uniquely challenging experiences faced by black women today. From education, to work, to dating, to representation, money and health, they explore the ways in which being black and female affects each of these areas - and offer advice and encouragement on how to navigate them. Illustrated with stories from Yomi and Elizabeth's own lives, and from interviews with dozens of the most successful black women in Britain - including Amma Asante, Charlene White, Jamelia, Denise Lewis, Malorie Blackman and Dawn Butler MP - this provocative, honest and uplifting book recognizes and celebrates the strides black British women have already made, whilst providing practical advice and inspiration for those who want to do the same and forge a better, visible future." --Publisher description.
