At one of the lowest moments of my life, Lady Phyll reached out, literally held me and helped nurse me back to life. She's well-known as the co-founder and executive director of UK Black Pride and for turning down an MBE from the Queen in 2016 in protest of this country's colonial legacy. She is a mother, activist, lover, mentor and icon to many and her life is best described in her own words. We speak at length on resilience, rebellion and protest; the tender woman behind the activist; and what hopes she has for her daughter, for UK Black Pride and for all of us.
