I added to gallery a new photos of Leigh-Anne on stage at the One Young World Summit in Manchester, England (8th September)
Poem ‘We’ written and performed by our Ambassador and Croydon Poet Laureate Shaniqua Benjamin, featuring Leigh-Anne Pinnock and our Ambassador Ebinehita Iyere for the One Young World Summit #OYW2022. Shaniqua and Ebinehita are two of our ‘Investing in Equality Scholarship’ winners.
The Investing in Equality Scholarship was set up in collaboration with Leigh-Anne Pinnock and The Black Fund to recognise and scale the work of young leaders who have demonstrated impact in dismantling racial injustice through creative expression and scalable activism.
We filmed the three of them expressing their journeys that led up to the moment they took their places on the #OYW2022 stage, speaking up for what they believe in.
Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Mark Feehily were among the big winners at the Burberry British Diversity Awards held at London’s Grand Connaught Rooms on Thursday night.
Leigh-Anne beat off stiff competition to be awarded the Media Champion prize for her groundbreaking documentary Race, Pop and Power, which focused on her experience as a black woman in the music industry.dailymail.co.uk
