Charlie Brinkhurst-Cuff on Telling Stories on Her Terms Whenever there's a race controversy surrounding a celebrity, politician or other notable person, Charlie Brinkhurst-Cuff's inbox dings. It's an email she's tired of receiving but is mercifully getting less frequently. "[That's] because I bitched about it enough online," she says while sitting at her home in Peckham. An accomplished freelance journalist, author and deputy editor of gal-dem—a print and online publication written by women and non-binary people of color—Brinkhurst-Cuff is often asked to comment.

Ibrahim Kamara on Building a Platform of Representation
Ibrahim Kamara doesn't want to edit this interview. He doesn't want to add clarifying statements or backtrack his words. He doesn't care about spin. Stretching his long legs under the table, crumpling the silver wrapper of his chicken wrap, he turns down an offer to read the piece before it's published. "Nah, I don't get why people do that," he says dismissively, insisting that if he said something, he meant it. Full stop. No misunderstandings.
