Is social media safe for Black women?
This week, Livs explores the toxic nature of social media. Black women are 84% more likely than white women to be mentioned in abusive or problematic tweets. What can we do to change the narrative? And is it getting worse as a result of lockdown? Gretchen Robertson is a Psychotherapist practising at Frontline Therapist, a virtual service for people of colour. Jackie Adedeji is a Podcaster and Columnist.
