THE BLACK BRITISH EXPERIENCE
Shaun is able to relay his lived experience as a black man growing up and living in Britain. He has experienced various forms of discrimination and exclusion and has overcome the negativity to achieve prominence in his professional field and also to become a much loved television star. His response to defeating prejudice is to defeat it with intelligence.
BLACK HISTORY MONTH
Shaun is a prolific crusader for Black History Month. He actively campaigns for the inclusion of black history in education in order to foster inclusive environment with greater respect for all British citizens. He delivers talks to young people in school to promote awareness of black history and empower them to further progress in the future.
Shaun is able to recount many truths on black history particularly the positioning and current status of black people in the UK. In doing so he dispels many misconceptions and mistruths about black people and their place in British History.
STOP & SEARCH
Shaun gives an insight into the experience of being stopped and searched by the police and how young black people in particular can better handle the experience of stop and search and respond in way to minimise friction in what is a particularly stressful and frustration interaction. He also speaks on the implementation of the stop and search laws which sees black people being disproportionality on the receiving end of prejudice.
