The Blackness: Black History in Southampton

As part of the Mayflower 400 project, I was commissioned to write the script and narrate The Blackness, a film featuring stories about the experience of black people in Southampton throughout history.

My role later expanded to co-producer and co-director alongside Black History Month South’s Don John & Southampton-based film production company Music Eye.

The film is being screened as part of Southampton Film Week.
