LONDON, Nov 12 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – All Serlina Boyd wanted when Britain first went into lockdown this spring was a magazine that kept her six-year-old daughter Faith entertained, away from digital screens, and above all, feeling good about her British-Jamaican heritage.

To her surprise, nothing fit the bill.

“It was really important for me that whatever I was putting in front of my daughter had some sort of representation because she wasn’t liking what she looked like, her hair. She experienced some bullying in school,” Boyd said.
