Brits and Pieces is an online magazine created to shine a glorious light on all the remarkable things people within the Black British community are imagining and achieving – not just at home in the UK but all around the world!
The duality of being both black and British is unique. The experiences, values, and traditions we share being born and/or raised in the UK are powerfully enriched by our heritages.
We are British, but irreplaceable Pieces of our identities are scattered elsewhere.
These Pieces are rooted in Caribbean islands and countries across the African continent, and have been puzzled together to birth what is a beautifully diverse and vibrant community in the UK.
Our experiences are unique, and with all unique experiences there are exceptional stories to be told. Homing in on figures from the world of politics, business, culture, arts, music, entertainment, religion and science, Brits and Pieces is simply here to celebrate ALL things Black British.
