CTRL, ALT, DELETE Podcast: #138 Yomi Adegoke and Elizabeth Uviebinené​

My guests today are authors and best friends Yomi Adegoke and Elizabeth Uviebinené​.​ They are the authors of SLAY IN YOUR LANE.

SLAY IN YOUR LANE is the long-awaited, inspirational guide to life for a generation of black British women inspired to make lemonade out of lemons, and find success in every area of their lives.
It was​ included in top Elle’s 12 addictive books of 2018, Metro’s best new books in 2018 and BBC’s hotly anticipated debut authors for 2018.

Yomi Adegoke and Elizabeth Uviebinené searched for a book that addressed the​ ​challenges​ ​for young black women and​ ​they realised none existed. So Slay in Your Lane – the lovechild of exasperation and optimism – was born. From education, to work, to dating, to representation, money and health,​ ​this is an ​ ​inspirational, honest and provocative Black Girl Bibl​e​ – the book​ ​offers advice and encouragement​ ​from the authors and​ ​interviews with dozens of the most successful black women in Britain – including Charlene White, Jamelia, Denise Lewis, Malorie Blackman and Dawn Butler MP.

Yomi​ ​is an award-winning journalist and senior writer at The Pool. She writes about race, feminism, popular culture and how they intersect, as well as class and politics.

Elizabeth is a​ ​former​ ​Marketing Manager​ ​and has a degree in​ ​Politics and International relations degree and specialises in creating marketing campaigns that are both culturally progressive and commercially relevant.
