Synopsis

Broadcaster and activist June Sarpong OBE lays bare an honest and intimate account of a life spent at the forefront of the fight for inclusivity.



Following a career spanning over twenty-five years, June Sarpong has become one of the most recognisable faces of British television. The recipient of both an MBE and OBE for her work in charity and broadcasting, in 2019 June made history by becoming the first ever Director of Creative Diversity for the BBC.





In this memoir June invites us all into her life. From her early childhood spent in Ghana to her experiences as a black woman forging a career in the media - where she was often the only black person, or woman, in the room - June opens the door to her world and paints a poignant picture of what has helped shape her into who she is today.





The Only One in the Room is a passionate story about breaking down barriers and advocating for equality in all areas of life, and one that will empower others to do the same.
