In this brand new series for Byline TV, Byline Times Editor Hardeep Matharu will be sitting down to have in depth conversations with people from diverse backgrounds and political beliefs to explore where their sense of identity comes from, and what happens if that doesn’t fit with what people might expect based on race, gender, sexuality or any other grounds.
In this clip from the first episode, available in full for Byline TV+ members, Hardeep meets Esther Krakue, a conservative commentator and frequent panellist on Talk TV and GB News. Esther moved to the UK from Ghana as a teenager and so straddles two identities, and in many ways two political ideologies. In the UK, Esther is seen as a conservative, but she says by Ghanian standards she falls more into the liberal camp.
Watch this fascinating conversation in which Hardeep explores where Esther’s identity comes from – and why she says the Black Lives Matter organisation, doesn’t represent her.
