OUR LIVES MATTER
After the death of George Floyd in the United States, the Black Lives Matter movement became a global phenomenon - and Byline Times editor Hardeep Matharu responded by commissioning a new strand called Our Lives Matter, which gives a platform in the newspaper and on the website to writers of colour.
In this episode of the podcast, Hardeep discusses the need for diversity in the media with Prithvi Khilosia, one of the writers who has featured in the series. Prithvi describes the challenges faced by the children of migrants from South Asia, when they think of a career in the creative arts or journalism.
