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 Bible – 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.
