She is the author of London Is the Place For Me: Black Britons, Citizenship and the Politics of Race (Oxford, 2016) and currently working on a new book, David Oluwale’s Britain which uses imperilled Black life as a lens to rethink the contours of contemporary British history.

She has worked for over 30 years as a cultural activist and advocate, having been instrumental to the development of Autograph (ABP) and Ten.8 Photographic Magazine.
