Interview on Bristol's Ujima Radio

Recently, I did a radio interview with John Kennington at inner city Ujima Radio for their programme of Minority Ethnic elders.

I talked about Black2Nature, about how the majority of Minority Ethnic old people were born "back home" in rural places where they were able to play outside outside as children and connect with nature. I wanted them to talk about their experiences and make that connection between their inner city dwelling grandchildren and their rural heritage.

This is the link to a radio interview I did that was aired on Monday on Bristol's Ujima Radio

I will be interview some Minority Ethnic elders about their childhood experiences in nature for a Ujima Radio programme due to be aired in January 2017.
