The Making of Britain’s Black Renaissance

News Correspondent

After the death of George Floyd in May last year, Black Lives Matter protests spread to every corner of the world.

The movement even made it all the way to Buckingham Palace.

That’s according to the Queen’s first Black Lord-lieutenant for Greater London, Sir Kenneth Olisa, who told this programme that the Royal household were firmly supportive of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Sir Kenneth was ranked Britain’s most powerful Black person in the 2016 Power List documenting this country’s Black elite.

In collaboration with the annual list, Channel 4 News sat down with Sir Kenneth Olisa, Karen Blackett, Sir David Adjaye, Tom Ilube and Ric Lewis, to talk about how power is changing.
