“I urge young females across the nation to read this book, as it inspires you to go all out and grab the world by the lapels.”
Kanya King MBE, Founder of the MOBO Awards
Letters to a Young Generation were created to address the lack of books aimed at young black boys and girls from a black British perspective. In 2014 Amanda set up her own publishing company 9:10 Publishing so that she could publish the books herself, rather than waiting or relying on mainstream publishers. The books were featured on national television, radio and in mainstream newspapers and have made a big impact on all those who have read them.
17 women share their experiences of growing up in the UK as a black female. Heartfelt and honest, they offer words of wisdom and encouragement to the next generation. Contributions from: Sinitta, Bianca Miller, Ms Dynamite, Tricia Bailey, Samantha Golding, Angie Le Mar, Madeline McQueen, Diahanne Rhiney, Kay Oldroyd, Jessica Elliott, Jenni Steele, Jennifer Garrett, Ronke Lawal, Karen Blackett, Claudine Reid, Annmarie Lewis and Leah Charles-King.
Forewords written by Kanya King and Angie Greaves.
