Black Voices was created to give Black people a platform to share experiences, stories and ultimately to educate.

These are important stories to tell so that we can begin to head towards real equality.

Black people deserve to be heard now more than ever. So, the hope for this platform is that it will create debate and much needed discussion about racism and how we can all be part of the solution.

ITV believes it’s important to listen, learn and make lasting changes.

Because Black lives matter.
