About Us


Black Ballad is a UK based lifestyle website that taps into the conversations Black British women are having over dinner, through the changing room walls of Zara, online and anywhere else in between.

As black British women ourselves, (well, the majority of the team is), we understand our identity is influenced by a wide range of sources and cultures.


To create bold and intelligent articles from important social issues to the latest beauty topics that most resonate with the progressive black British woman.

Whatever your stance on our perspective, Black Ballad encourages readers to find their own voice and embrace the confidence that comes from articulating that voice.
