In today’s episode of New Activists, Munroe Bergdorf announces her next venture in the world of activism; forming a diversity campaign aimed at children.
Murnoe said she aims to; “look at how kids are taught about each other’s cultures, because if we live in a multi-cultural society then the education system has to reflect that.”
The anti-racism activist also discusses her latest interview on Good Morning Britain, in which they discuss Dove’s controversial advert.
The advert, which Dove has since removed and apologised for, features a black woman transforming into a white woman in a three second GIF on Facebook.
On how she felt when being asked to go on GMB with Piers Morgan again, Munroe said; “My first initial reaction was like, no. I’m not putting myself through that again.
And then I just thought, actually, this isn’t about that and it makes more sense to actually not avoid awkward situations or awkward conversations.”
