WTS 210: Femi Bankole

July 18, 2020

This week we're joined by Femi Bankole who is one of the people behind the brilliant social media movement Black and Irish

In the wake of George Floyd's murder and the surge of support for the Black Lives Matter movement, Femi and his two friends Leon Diop and Boni Odoemene set up the Black and Irish instagram page to platform the experience of black people around Ireland. 

Femi tells us about the page and his experience of living in Ireland and what he hopes to change. 

This week's podcast also gives a nod to the great Jack Charlton who passed away last Friday. At a time where people need to stand together, Jack's legacy is one of bringing an entire country together through the magic of Euro 88, Italia 90 and USA 94.
