This book includes extracts from dozens of interviews with some of the most successful black women in Britain. Where possible within this audiobook, we have used the original recordings of those interviews, which took place in a variety of locations; so, whilst the nature of the recordings vary, the insights and advice remain constantly inspiring.

Black women in 2018 are well past making waves - we’re currently creating something of a tsunami. From authors to politicians, to entrepreneurs, to artists, black women in the UK continue to thrive against all odds and well outside of the world’s expectations. Women who look like us, grew up in similar places to us and talk like us are shaping almost every societal sector, from the bottom and, finally, from all the way up at the top.

Black women today are facing uniquely challenging experiences in all aspects of their lives. Yet when best friends Yomi Adegoke and Elizabeth Uviebinené searched for a book that addressed these challenges they realised none existed. So Slay in Your Lane—the love child of exasperation and optimism—was born.

From education, to work, to dating, to representation, money and health, this inspirational, honest and provocative Black Girl Bible explores the ways in which being black and female affects each of these areas—and offers advice and encouragement on how to navigate them.

Illustrated with stories from Elizabeth and Yomi’s own lives, and from interviews with dozens of the most successful black women in Britain—including Amma Asante, Charlene White, Jamelia, Denise Lewis, Malorie Blackman and Dawn Butler MP—Slay in Your Lane recognises and celebrates the strides black women have already made whilst providing practical advice and inspiration for those who want to do the same and forge a better, visible future.
