'Something to Say' is a book featuring positive stories from Manchester-based black voices aged 13-21.
“It is an opportunity to truly listen about who we are and hear about our lives. Things are changing. Power is shifting. If they (referencing politicians/people in power in this context) want to be part of that change, then they need to hear our voices and what we have to say.” – Something to Say
To promote their book, Something To Say, co-authors Alex and Ade sit down for a Q&A hosted by Reece Williams to talk about their experiences and what inspired them to write the book as part of their project with The Agency. You’ll also hear extracts from the book, watch live performances and there will be a section where the authors will answer questions from the public.
