Discrimination against urban music persists, says report to MPs
Institutionalised racism continues to affect the live sector, committee told
The future of black British music is at risk from prejudice within the live sector, says a digital, culture, media and sport committee report to MPs.
Despite the abolition of form 696 in 2017, said by many to give the Metropolitan police undue power to close down black music events in the capital, “institutionalised” racism continues to affect the sector, Roundhouse head of music, Jane Beese, told the committee.
