Marcus Daniel: Media Diversified
Play • 54 min

Media Diversified was established in 2013 to help change the conversation in the media and foreground the voices of writers of colour. Media Diversified is a powerhouse: two books, Bare Lit Festival, the Jhalak Prize and a newly appointed editor-in-chief, Marcus Daniel. Marcus joins me in conversation today to discuss combating the overwhelming negativity of the British media, creating space to amplify Black voices and reclaiming our time from racism. We also touch upon his view of what it does and doesn’t mean to be mixed race, the formative impact of queer Black social groups and what he hopes to achieve at the helm of one of the most important media platforms in the world. 


Marcus Daniel is the editor-in-chief of Media Diversified — a non-profit organisation working to enrich, engage and improve the UK's media landscape. The organisation was founded in 2013 with a mission to challenge the homogeneity of voices in UK media, through addressing the under-representation of minority communities. You can support Media Diversified's editorial independence through their Patreon.
