Olive Morris

Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara


Olive was in kinship care a child when she moved from the countryside in Jamaica to live with her grandma in London in Britain. She soon realised just how tough and hard life was growing up in Britain during the 1970s.

Her life changed forever when she witnessed police brutality towards a Black man and was arrested when she came to his aid.

Olive became a leader within the Black British community, fighting against any kind of abuse and speaking up about racism. She never let the injustices she faced as a Black woman during that time stop her.
