Presented by Channie B with sounds by Curtis Arnold Harmer
SURGE is about how you see me and view what is in front of you. With a rise in reports of police injustice and brutality across the world, stereotypes are often almost immediately placed on people and those classed as ‘Other’ due to their race, class, religion, sexuality etc. in the UK causing prejudice and discrimination.
This is about changing your perception, stripping you of what you may think you know to be true and reminding you of humanity and the potential you have as humans to change perceptions. We constantly hear of brutality in the USA, however the issues are closer to home than some realise
