While ‘playing the race card’ is often used in an attempt to gaslight and silence legitimate debate, this new series flips that notion on its head.
The show brings several influential UK voices together to open up on their personal experiences and reactions to racial stereotyping at school, at work, and in wider society.
In Episode 1, Lynx call on AJ Tracey and Jesse Lingard to lead their version of ‘The Race Card’, with grime star Novelist, presenter and comedian Sideman, writer and stylist Ayishat Akanbi, and presenter Chanté Joseph also joining for unfiltered discussions about their experiences growing up in the UK.
‘The Race Card’ was created in partnership with SocialFIXT — the online job-board platform and community connecting Black talent to jobs in the creative industries — and paq — the Black-owned creative agency that delivers their vision with purpose, authenticity and quality.
As part of their commitment to racial equality, Lynx will also be building on this relationship with SocialFIXT. The partnership is part of a broader diversity and inclusion plan focused on building a bridge between Black talent and the marketing and creative industries, which you can read more about here.
