You Are Able To Break The Label
Darren Keenan reads his speech You are able to break the label, on how people can be prejudiced towards others based on appearance.
Darren is a member of our Young Leaders programme. The Almeida Young Leaders is a scheme giving young people with something vital to say the tools and platform to do so. Each young leader has been mentored by a writer and director to develop their ideas, structuring a speech and skills in public speaking.
Darren is from Brixton and really wants to have a career in campaigning and politics. He wanted to show people that have similar backgrounds to him that you will be able to break the label. He joined the Advocacy academy and Campaign Bootcamp and it really opened his eyes on some of the injustices people and groups are facing, so he wants to help bring about equality.
