Tue, 20 October 7:30pm

Candice started blogging about motherhood after making the powerful observation that the way it’s portrayed in the British media is unrepresentative of our society at large.   Her resulting bestselling book is a thought-provoking, inspirational guide that deals with facing hurdles such as white privilege and unconscious bias with humour and straight-talking. It allows mums like her to take control and gives everyone much-needed insight into what it’s like to be a black mother today. 

Humorous but unflinching, every mother, everywhere, should read this book –  OK Magazine
