11. Mango Tea ’Stand proud’

“Inspired by the art style of Hirohiko Araki I created this piece that centres around the black LGBT community”. 
Mango Tea

12. Flynn Richards ’Ode to Daryl Davies’

13. Hanifah Stewart ’She’s got The Good Hair’

“Acknowledging the fact that euro-centric beauty standards aren’t the ONLY beauty standards. 
Hannifah Stewart

14. Angel Duah Ansah ’All A Blur’

“My piece celebrates black lives in a sense that we have to face all these challenges and we are constantly attacked and looked down upon, however we are strong and we make sure it doesn’t tear us down. My piece doesn’t show the black woman (but yet just the back of her head) to show how our identity isn’t needed to show that we need the basic rights we’ve been wanting since time began.” Angel Dual Ansah

15. Scarlette Heywood Marx ‘Black and Proud’

16. Nyah Larosa Walters ’Black Lives Matter’

“The Queen has hair emphasised in the form of a crystal Geode to amplify her regality and emphasise the importance of spirituality and beauty within the black woman.”
Nyah Larosa Walters

17. NerdyBoyMike ’Freedom’

18. Theo Aihie ’Mirror Mirror World III’

19. Skyla Chi Khamjani- Wilson ‘Rainbow Afro Mermaid’

20. Iolaa Jenn ’He was not a threat’

21. Mango Tea ’My life matters’

22. Amoré van der Linde ’Respect My Crown’

For too long and too often our natural and cultural hairstyles have been deemed inappropriate and unprofessional in society and the workplace. This poster is an expression of the value and beauty of our hair and how it should be respected, and treated with the same regard as the hair of any other.”
Amoré van der Linde

29. Alexander Adegbite ’Recognise The Injustice’

“I know the feeling of being stopped by police, and being intimidated by them, despite knowing I am completely innocent.”
Alexander Adegbite

30. Eden Bradshaw ‘Black is beautiful, black is versatile’

31. Flynn Richards ’Ode to Chadwick Boseman’

32. Morgan Markey ’Colour Me’

“By subverting an activity (colouring) traditionally associated with children, the viewer is left to sit with the uncomfortable feeling of instinctually understanding how to colour this image in. In this way, the viewer must reconcile with their own inherent knowledge and awareness of systemic racism within law enforcement.”
Morgan Markey

33. Matilde Strocchi ’I am black every month’

34. Aakira Coleman ’BLM Unity Flag’

35. Kylie Strong ’Pay It No Mind (Marsha P. Johnson)’

36. Daniel Hayden ’Demand Justice’

37. Rt1styx.Arts ’Sylvia Wynter Activist Writers’

“Sylvia Wynter, a Jamaican black female activist philosopher, critic, writer, novelist and dramatist is pictured in a forest, floating on a cloud.
She is best known for her diverse writings that pull together insights from theories in history, literature, life.
She is one of the foremost Caribbean artists and thinkers. She is a playwright, novelist, public intellectual and celebrated scholar of Black Studies and the colonial and postcolonial condition. A very inspirational black Jamaican woman who has faced many adversities growing up, despite all of that she managed to rise above them (represented by the cloud she is floating on) and continues to inspire in her old age.”

38. Arin Awojobi ’What Dreams Are Made Of’

39. Florentyne Katakwe ’Does this Stereotype define you?’

“The expected societal standards towards men and women within the black community.”
Florentyne Katakwe

40. Jade Nash ‘Melanated Glow’

“The ‘Melanated Glow’ is my personal celebration of the beauty that is black woman. I wanted to highlight that even without showing our hair, our regality still shines through, and this is reflected from the beautiful headscarf that crowns her head.”
Jade Nash

41. Jas Nandoo ’Only half’

“Being mixed means you’re always in the middle. For me, I’m not Persian enough to be Persian, and not Carribean enough to be Carribean. Not black enough to be “black”. There’s still not a box for us on the government’s “select your ethnicity” tick boxes. We may be [x] Mixed (Other), but we’re not other. We’re not “only half”. We’re whole.”
Jas Nandoo, Winner of BSBH Award 2020

42. Savanah Thorpe ’Starting a Change’

“To spark a change everyone needs to help everyone.”
Savanah Thorpe

43. Dru Bennett, Kade Stenson and Dylan Jones ’2020 Protest’

44. Elizabeth Dada ’We Are Excellence’

“I wanted my poster to be colourful, showcasing all kinds of Black beauty and shades of brown. I also had my characters wearing work uniforms/outfits to show that we can achieve whatever ambitions we want! Whether it be a Doctor, Ballet/dancer, Lawyer, Scientist or even a Actress/Singer.”
Elizabeth Dada

45. Kasthury Jegatheeswaranathan ’Black Lives Matter’

46. Denis Ntege ‘I am black every month’

I created this design recently to show my love and appreciation for my friend, a beautiful black woman, a work of art in the best way. Seeing herself as a piece of artwork, something not many black women were used to seeing. But now this new generation of black artists are able to do exactly that, showcase the beautiful black women of the world in new lights for them to be admired and loved like never before.”
Denis Ntege

47. Nathan King ’Black Is King’

48. Michel Paige ’No Justice, No Peace’

“My submission is an amalgamation of a picture, a poster and a poem. I took the picture on my iPhone whilst being at one of the Black Lives Matter protests. I used a black and white effect on the picture to symbolise the tension between race relations and dreary ambience at the protest. The poem is an account of what happened at the protest, why it was happening, why my friends and I went along, my thoughts, my feelings and lastly a cry for help to God and call to action from the Black community as well as the wider community in the UK and internationally. The poem has a furious, sorrowful and somewhat helpless tone because this is how I was feeling during the protest. Although, the call to action at the end of the poem is showing hope that with the solidarity of Black people and alliances from different ethnicities, a positive change will come about to improve the lives of Black people, because our lives should matter just like our counterparts.”
Michel Paige
