  • The Black Music Coalition is hosting an event in The Elgar Room at Royal Albert Hall on Monday, September 27th. Starting at 5:30 PM in partnership with The Future Is, the free evening of panel discussions will follow a theme: "Past, Present + Future - The Black Experience in UK Music." Panelists announced so far include rapper Wretch 32, Zeon Richards (Pollen) and Whitney Boateng (WME). The discussion will explore several questions: whether or not things have changed for Black people in the industry since 2020's Blackout Tuesday on social media; how any changes are being implemented and who they benefit; and how the industry is ensuring positive changes will have longevity and the possibility to evolve when required. The evening will also include live performances and a Q&A. Ahead of Monday, The Black Music Coalition is streaming two panel discussions on their YouTube channel at 1 PM today, September 24th. Panelists include Jordan Hallpike (Ibiza Rocks, Merky Festival) and TikTok's Lola Oyewole. Launched in June 2020, The Black Music Coalition is a Black-led organisation dedicated to eradicating racial inequality within the UK music industry. Find out more via their website. Tickets to Monday's event are available via Royal Albert Hall.
