Year of the Fix: 2013
Location: Manchester
Campaign: Stereotypes of Black Youths

Being young and black isn't always easy. We see the stereotypes people use every day.

 

There is discrimination out there and often we are judged purely on our appearance.

 

It's like people are scared that we might do something. We're just normal kids yet we have been stopped by the police and members of the public have said they're intimidated by us if we get on a bus.

 

Working with Fixers, we hope our poster campaign will help create some understanding and put things in perspective.

 

Stories in the media about knife and gun crime don’t help either. It gives the public a view that all black people are bad and this is what we want to change.
