Apollo Construction. Beverley Bryan: the British Black Panther who inspired a generation of women. In the mid-60s, Beverley Bryan was a prefect at Lavender Hill secondary modern in south London.
One of her responsibilities was to stand at the school gates and scribble down the name of any student who was late. One such girl was Olive Morris, who would become one of the country’s leading anti-racism activists. Bryan, meanwhile, would follow in the younger girl’s footsteps, becoming a British Black Panther, a founder member of the Brixton Black Women’s Group and, in 1985, the co-author of the seminal book The Heart of the Race: Black Women’s Lives in Britain – which helped educate generations of women about the struggles and triumphs of Black women in Britain. “She was always very fierce,” Bryan says, over a video call from her home in Jamaica, of her friend Morris, who died in 1979. “She was always a strong person, a strong personality.” The National Security Archive.

Mainstream Media's Sochi Olympics hysteria. Wartime Christmases can teach us how to 'muddle through' in the time of Covid. Being as I am a child of divorce, I watched all the media discussion of Christmas and what was to be done about it with detached bemusement.
I have come to view Christmas as something of a movable feast, which at times had been downright unconventional. I realised that it mattered hugely to other people, of course, but I’d be fine, I thought – relieved, even, not to be on a crammed train, the windows misting up with everyone’s virus-y breath.

News.google. Obama on Black Lives Matter. Current Events. Data Is Beautiful. What British politicians won't admit – we need to transform the welfare state. I found an anecdote towards the end of The Road to 1945, the late historian Paul Addison’s history of how the second world war changed Britain.
It centres on Winston Churchill, Ernest Bevin – then minister of labour in the wartime coalition government – and thousands of soldiers setting off to mainland Europe.

'Racism's still around': Notting Hill 50 years on from Mangrove. In the last scene of Mangrove, the first instalment of Steve McQueens critically acclaimed series Small Axe, the focal character Frank Crichlow is smoking outside his restaurant.
It’s a cold night and Crichlow, played by Shaun Parkes, looks weighed down by the landmark trial he and eight others had just won. His friend Dalston “Dol” Isaacs tells him: “We might have won the battle Frank, but we’ll see about the war.” Isaacs complains he can’t cope with another winter in the UK and wants to go home, to which Crichlow replies: “This we home, Dol.
The Mangrove.” Though Isaacs, who is played by Gary Beadle, was speaking of the cold, the scene points to something much deeper – and raises questions about how much has actually changed since then.
