*Black and Global Majority is a term that we use at the Young Vic in place of terminology such as 'Person of Colour' and 'BAME'. We acknowledge that there is no perfect wording to represent the complexities of each individual identity, and we know the term ‘Black and Global Majority’ is not perfect. However, it is the only definition at this present time which does not centre whiteness, and is also factually true - over 80% of the world’s population make up the Global Majority.
