BBC History Magazine - - Letters -

There isn’t enough room for ev­ery­one in 100 Women Who Changed the World, but two pi­o­neer­ing black women who made an im­pact in Bri­tain should be ac­knowl­edged. The Ja­maican fem­i­nist, poet and broad­caster Una Mar­son (1905– 65) and the Trinida­dian jour­nal­ist and ac­tivist Clau­dia Jones (1915– 64) who co-founded the Not­ting Hill Car­ni­val. I was partly re­spon­si­ble for Una be­ing hon­oured with a South­wark Blue Plaque. Stephen Bourne, Lon­don
