Slay in Your Lane

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 lovechild of exasperation and optimism – was born.

From education, to work, to dating, to representation, money and health, they explore the ways in which being black and female affects each of these areas – and offer advice and encouragement on how to navigate them.

With stories from Elizabeth and Yomi’s own lives, and drawing on 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 – they recognise and celebrate 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.
