Black History Month 2020: Alexandra Wilson

Alexandra Wilson is a barrister specialising in criminal and family law and the author of “In Black and White: A Young Barrister’s Story of Race and Class in a Broken Justice System”. She has highlighted the inherent racism in the justice system, in particular by highlighting an incident in which she was mistaken for a defendant three times in one day, but also by flagging the racial bias which systematically results in black people being more likely to be arrested, prosecuted and sentenced to prison under similar circumstances. She also successfully campaigned for Amazon to remove from sale a hat with the slogan “Black Lives Don’t Matter”.
