Black History Month 

To kick off I'm going to drop a link to the biography for Olive Morris.

Morris was a member of the British Black Panthers and a leading figure of radical feminism during the 1970s. During her time in activism, she established black women's magazines, organisations to support women of colour and pioneered London's squatters movement with the occupation of several vacant buildings in Brixton.

She's one of the most important figures in post-war British radical history and someone that more people need to know about.

The Wikipedia article on Morris is incredibly well sourced and put together, so if you read it and want to know more, check out the references at the bottom:
