Our recommended reads are a mix of fiction and non-fiction; from the experience of the black community in Tudor England, to the current day, with stories from Michael Fuller, the first black Chief Constable, to Olympic gold medallist and World Heavyweight Champion, Anthony Joshua. Try the critically-acclaimed ‘Queenie’ from debut novelist, Candice Carty-Williams, delve into the poems of Benjamin Zephaniah or follow the meteoric rise of musician Stormzy.
