    Alexandra Wilson was a teenager when her dear family friend Ayo was stabbed on his way home from football. Ayo’s death changed Alexandra. She felt compelled to enter the legal profession in search of answers. As a junior criminal and family law barrister, Alexandra finds herself navigating a world and a set of rules designed by a privileged few. A world in which fellow barristers sigh with relief when a racist judge retires: ‘I’ve got a black kid today and he would have had no hope’. In her debut book, ‘In Black and White’, Alexandra re-creates the tense courtroom scenes, the heart-breaking meetings with teenage clients, and the moments of frustration and triumph that make up a young barrister’s life.

    ‘I glanced around the courtroom, quickly at first and then repeated it. Slower this time, taking in the details of everyone’s faces. I began to play the game I’d played my whole life: spot the black person. Of course, I wish it didn’t matter what I looked like or where I came from, but it was obvious that no one there looked like me.’ Alexandra is 25, mixed-race and from Essex. As a trainee criminal and family law barrister, she finds herself navigating a world and a set of rules designed by a privileged few. This is her story. We follow Alexandra through a criminal justice system still divided by race and class. We hear about the life-changing events that motivated her to practice law, beginning with the murder of a close family friend and her own experiences of knife crime.
