Student & Activist
University of Bristol

“tryna bring my words into reality”. This motto, of being more than just talk, and making his wishes manifest, pervades all his public work. A skilled communicator, with a singular ability to analyse and explain the root causes of social injustice, Athian is motivated by a profound sense of justice and a desire to rectify society’s ills. He’s written features in The Guardian, and Dazed, as well as an essay in the collection Black Joy, appeared on Al Jazeera; and recently featured on Loyle Carner’s new album Hugo. Whatever he does, Akec remains committed to the collective and his dream of a world in which all Black people can flourish.
