Claudia Jones (1915-1964) was born in Trinidad; her parents took her to the US as a child and she was subsequently imprisoned for her political activities and later deported to the UK.  This outstanding communist, feminist, peace activist, orator, journalist and founder of the biggest street festival in Europe is buried next to Karl Marx in Highgate Cemetery and is the subject of a talk by Marika Sherwood.

Peggy Mulongo will also speak about her work on female genital mutilation (FMG) and women’s rights. She is a cross-cultural mental health practitioner and co-founder of the charity NESTAC, The New Step for African Community, which has been established to support Africans and immigrants, particularly those living in the North West of England.
