About this submission

I chose to tell this story because I wanted to uplift the narrative of Black women in positions of political power, especially as we don't get to see them that often in our history. I was surprised that the first Black woman to become a mayor in Europe was from my hometown Slough, and even more surprised that I had never even learned about her in my own local school. I became determined to preserve her legacy and uplift her amazing story through my poetry, music and film vision which led to the making of this passion project.
