Black History Heroes

This Black History Month we've taken a look at black pioneers and role models from British history and the present day. Dr. Altheia Jones-Lecointe dubbed "the brains behind the Black Panther Movement" describes the racism in the 1960s and how she defeated the police in court. Also, learn about the achievements of the UK's first black female MP and what notable figures are doing to encourage future generations of black talent.
