Au­thors of Slay In Your Lane: The Black Girl

Bi­ble (out 12 July, Harper Collins), El­iz­a­beth and Yomi’s friend­ship goes back to univer­sity. Yomi is now a jour­nal­ist and El­iz­a­beth a brand mar­keter, but their true forte is in­spir­ing black women to re­alise their po­ten­tial. ‘Af­ter fac­ing chal­lenges in my first job, I read books on how to get ahead at work as a woman, and spot­ted that black Bri­tish women weren’t be­ing widely rep­re­sented – so we de­cided to do some­thing about it,’ says El­iz­a­beth. Their sum­mer cock­tail or­der? Yomi will take a pas­sion­fruit mo­jito and El­iz­a­beth will have a piña co­lada with an ex­tra shot of rum, please. Read their run-down of cul­ture-defin­ing on­line move­ments on page 66.
