Ayeisha Thomas-Smith is joined by researcher and author, Christine Berry and Farzana Khan, executive director and co-founder of Healing Justice London


Joe Biden has defeated Donald Trump to win the US election. Test results from around the world suggest that a coronavirus vaccine is on the horizon.

Ayeisha is joined by researcher and author, Christine Berry and Farzana Khan, executive director and co-founder of Healing Justice London.
