Leigh Anne’s Documentary entitled ‘Leigh Anne: Colourism & Race’ is expected to air in February on BBC iPlayer!
Leigh-Anne was seen filming for the documentary at the Black Lives Matter protests in London in June and the new programme has finally been confirmed.
Leigh-Anne’s documentary will detail the Little Mix singer’s own experiences of racism, as well as her family and fiance Andre Gray’s, in bringing such discussions “to a wider audience”.
Confirming the documentary she explained: “Conversations surrounding racism and colourism are something I constantly have with my boyfriend and family.
“Systemic racism is complex; through making this documentary I want to learn how I can best lend my voice to the debate so that the young people who look up to me won’t have to face what me and my generation have had to.”
The 28-year-old is making the documentary “because I have always been passionate about rights for black people”.
She added that she wants to “stand up for my black and brown community”.capitalfm.com
Jade and Leigh-Anne have been handed awards after standing up in support of the Black Lives Matter movement:
The singers say they’re “honoured” to share the Equality prize at the 2020 Ethnicity Awards, and spoke about why they feel it’s so important to use their platform to fight race issues.
They’ll be handed their prizes at tonight’s ceremony, held in association with sponsors HSBC UK.
Earlier this year, Leigh-Anne opened up about the racism she has faced and has recently announced she is making a BBC documentary about her experiences. The pair were also two of the high profile figures to take part in London’s Black Lives Matter march in August.
Leigh-Anne said in a video:
“Hi guys, I just wanted to say a massive thank you for voting for me for this award, joint with Jade which is absolutely amazing. “Thank you so much, I feel so overwhelmed to have received an award like this. “I will continue to use my platform to speak up about race and fighting the fight. “I already feel like there are so many people out there working towards change and fighting this fight and not necessarily being projected in social media or in the news so this award is for them.”

“Hi everyone, thank you so, so, so much for this award. We’re so unbelievably grateful and still can’t quite believe it to be honest. “It’s really important for me and Leigh to be using our platform to sort of share our experiences as two women of colour in the music industry, and just generally throughout our lives in the hopes of inspiring our young fans particularly to be proud of who they are and to make a difference in this world. “I think this year particularly, as I’m sure everyone has experienced, has taken myself and Leigh on a very educational journey about what it means to put words into actions and to use our voices to really take a stand. “I’m super proud of my sister Leigh and I’m so happy that we get to share this achievement together.”
