LEIGH-ANNE: RACE, POP & POWER
This powerful documentary follows pop star Leigh-Anne Pinnock as she confronts her experience as the only black member of Little Mix, and as a black woman in the music industry. Leigh-Anne talks about the racism she experienced growing up.
After she begins her journey, news of George Floyd's death and the Black Lives Matter protests start to sweep the world. With the force of a global movement now behind her, Leigh-Anne confronts those closest to her and attempts to bring difficult conversations about black representation right to the top of the music industry.
