South Asian diaspora, colourism and internalised racism with Mehek Bukhari

Mehek is a 23 year old law graduate and podcast host of Brownsplain. She makes really cool videos on tiktok and Instagram. She describes herself as having more opinions than she knows what to do with! She has done some incredible work focused on the experiences of ethnic minorities in the UK. As a second (and a half) generation British South Asian, she grew up on stories of racism within the UK and the horrors of the partition. She is on a mission to discuss issues that are often relegated to the cultural and historical sidelines.
