BOXPARK TALKS: BLACK REPRESENTATION IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY

 

As a business, the overwhelmingly white, male-run music industry has made billions from black music. Yet we rarely, if ever, see black presidents, label heads or CEOs. For years, black people have asked for better representation and diversity across the board — now is the time for labels to take action, and BOXPARK is bringing together a group of professionals in the music industry to discuss what needs to change.

BOXPARK Wembley is hosting the panel discussion on Monday 25th October from 7 – 9pm, led by So Solid Crew rapper and Founder of Black Pound Day Swiss. Other speakers taking part include Mo The Comedian’s Tour Manager Javan Miller and more.

18+ after 9pm
