Listen: Black Ballad’s Inspiring All-Female Playlist To Lose Yourself In

Black Ballad is a UK-based lifestyle platform that seeks to tell the human experience through the eyes of black British women. Focused on elevating Black women through content, community, and commerce, they felt like the perfect fit to host our first in-store Book Club at St Christopher’s Place. Head of Editorial, Jendella Benson, was joined by author Liv Little to discuss her debut novel Rosewater and to celebrate the event, Black Ballad put together an eclectic playlist packed full of inspiring Black female artists from both past and present.
