Fear Of Missing Out (FOMO)

[Repeated from Tuesday 6pm.] Young people living in the UK, talking about the stuff we wish we'd learnt in school. Every episode, a new presenter goes on a personal journey through the bits of British history that people aren't talking about enough. Today: episode 3. In March 2022, a report came out about Child Q: a 15 year old black secondary school student from London, who was strip searched by the police in her own school.  22 year old Halima moved to England from Ireland when she was 14. Hearing about Child Q felt like a breaking point for her own resilience to racism in the UK. Halima looks into the history of the criminalisation of black communities in the UK, which for Halima - and Child Q - started at school.  This documentary deals with racism and police violence. Take care listening. Producer: Jesse Lawson. A Boldface Production, supported by the Audio Content Fund.
