Lenny Henry: "I was never that comfortable being myself"

 The Big Issue UK 21 September 2019

Sir Lenny Henry writes a letter to his younger self, looking back at his poor working class background, in which the only way out for a black kid was “sport, show business, music – or crime”. He speaks to The Big Issue about the lack of diversity on TV, how Comic Relief changed his life – and not being "everybody's cup of tea." (1030 Words) - By Adrian Lobb
