Holly catches up with much loved Wilfred Emmanuel-Jones, founder of The Black Farmer. They muse over the opportunity that change presents and how localisation is key for a future after lockdown. Wilfred says that there has never been a better time for small businesses and now is the time to focus on the focus, to trust your gut and follow your instincts.
He touches on this historic moment for race and how Black awareness has come, but that we must work this into something practical and tangible to ensure Black people and People of Colour have equal access to opportunities. We can all personally do something and now is the time for change.
