I was the cameraman on the popular Channel 4 programme The Talk. It's an hour-long thought-provoking documentary that reveals a part of British life that is little known about outside the black community. 'The Talk’ in the black community is to prepare children for the reality of living in a society where their skin colour marks them out for a lifetime of challenges white people may not understand.

 

Interviewees included Maro Itoje, Lenny James, Gillian Joseph, Tinie Tempah, Gary Younge, Emeli Sande, Marvin and Rochelle Humes, Ashley and Jordan Banjo, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Ade Adepitan. They all shared memories of the talk(s) they’ve given or received, contextualised by family archive or an event that triggered the talk such as a prominent death in police custody.
