Generation Next: Young black men in the media (UK)

A foundation that aims to empower urban young people in the UK has made a documentary about how young black men are portrayed in the media.

The Generation Next Foundation has produced the film to mark Black History Month.

The Lambeth-based foundation was set up by two brothers - Hamdi and Ludvig Bonin - and aims to drive positive social change to help young people achieve their potential.

The film, called Minority Report, will be screened at City Hall on Friday, followed by a panel discussion with Conservative London Assembly Member James Cleverly, the Mayor's ambassador for young people, and Chuka Umunna, Labour's candidate for the Streatham seat at the next election, who is also a trustee of the Generation Next Foundation.

We believe that it is imperative to empower the youth in society so they have the tools to achieve their highest potential.
