Other speakers taking part include Mo The Comedian’s Tour Manager Javan Miller.  

Panellists will discuss that as a business, the overwhelmingly white, male-run music industry has made billions from black music yet people rarely see Black presidents, label heads or chief executives.

"For years, black people have asked for better representation and diversity across the board — now is the time for labels to take action, and Boxpark is bringing together a group of professionals in the music industry to discuss what needs to change," a Boxpark Wembley spokesperson said. 

The discussion will run from 7pm to 9pm.
