The Bristol Cable
Zakiya brings a fresh perspective on many issues, and wants to see more radicalism in our thinking about race, class and climate change.

As a leader of Bristol’s Black and Green project, Zakiya is bringing a background in broadcasting and research to connect the inner city with the natural environment and the wider environment movement. Featuring on BBC 4 and across many platforms with writing, Zakiya is a Jamaican born in London and lived most of her life in Jamaica. Zakiya brings a fresh perspective on many issues, and wants to see more radicalism in our thinking about race, class and climate change…and for people to stop being so polite!
