Prince Charles Black Newspaper ‘The Voice’, with Idris Elba Chat – Deadline

Prince Charles has guest edited the 40the anniversary edition of the British Black newspaper The voice.

The prince said he was “very touched” to be asked, noting that the paper, the only one in the UK to focus on black issues and culture, had become “an institution”.

In his edition, which goes on sale next week, Prince Charles has marked some of the great achievements of the black community in the last 40 years, since The Voice debuted in 1982.

The problem will include:

  • An interview with Idris Elba, who has always credited receiving a Prince’s Trust grant as a teenager as opening the door to his long career.
  • An interview with Bernardine Evaristo, author of ‘Niña, Mujer, Otra’ and the first black woman to win the coveted Booker Prize
  • An interview with Baroness Lawrence, mother of murdered teenager Stephen Lawrence, who has campaigned for years to improve social and economic mobility for people of diverse backgrounds.

Prince Charles said: “Over the last four decades, with all the enormous changes they have witnessed, Britain’s only surviving black newspaper has become an institution and a crucial part of the fabric of our society.

“That’s why I was so moved that I was invited to edit this special edition.”

Lester Holloway, editor of the newspaper, said: “Our readers may be surprised at the parallels between the topics that The voice has campaigned for four decades and the work the Prince of Wales has been involved in during the same period, often behind the scenes.

“In decades past, these causes were once despised and ridiculed, but today they are widely recognized.”
