I spent my self-isolation period during the COVID-19 pandemic, writing this book: ‘Lover’s Rock – More than a Dance Floor’, which was inspired by Director Steve McQueen’s Small Axe docudrama, Lover’s Rock, shown on the BBC, in November 2020, when people couldn't rave because of the coronavirus pandemic.The Small Axe ‘Lovers Rock’ arthouse film tells a fictional story of young love at a blues party, in the 1980s. However, although fictional, those viewers who didn’t live during that period, could have assumed that the drama accurately portrayed the lifestyle. Thousands, including myself from the Black British community, took to social media to share our disappointment – the film did not represent our experiences, it did not reflect our style, and it lowered the tone of the era.
