My BLM Action Plan

  • Mentoring: I am mentoring young black men to help them talk through the feelings I never got to talk about growing up. If you are in the UK consider becoming a mentor with Amos Bursary
  • Educate: I am reading about black history, from America to Africa and encourage you to do the same. One of my favourite books is “The Black Jacobins”, the story of the Haitian Revolution, the only successful slave rebellion. It’s the most painful book I’ve ever read as it’ll bring every feeling out of you, but it has filled me with an amazing amount of courage. For more books checked out: Justice For __ : Funding Racial Justice + Book Recommendations .
  • Voting: I'm registering to vote in the US presidential election for the first time since 2008. If you are based abroad get your absentee ballot: Absentee and Early Voting
  • Mental health: I’m tackling my own mental health by talking about my feelings and encouraging others to do the same.
  • Speaking out: I’m sharpening my public skills and using forums and open discussions to voice my views and ideas and encouraging others to do the same.
  • Supporting: Organisations such as the Equal Justice Initiative whose mission is to reform the criminal justice system in the United States — Get Involved. Watch the documentary 13th, filmmaker Ava DuVernay explores the history of racial inequality in the United States, focusing on the fact that the nation’s prisons are disproportionately filled with African-Americans.
