  • Black Ballad is a glossy lifestyle website that puts the mixed-race and black British woman of excellence at the forefront. Launched in June 2014, Black Ballad aims to reverse the mainstream narrative by making the mixed-race and black British woman and her needs the priority. I write on issues of concern to young black women. My articles have achieved very good views and social media shares.
