Olive Morris: Google Doodle honours community activist – who is Olive Morris?

Olive also co-founded the Organisation of Women of Asian and African Descent, considered instrumental in rallying movements for change.

She was named as one of eight Black women to have contributed to the development of women in 2018 by The Voice newspaper, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the women’s right to vote.

Google said in a statement: “There has never been a more timely moment to commemorate the birthday of Olive Morris, whose fight for equality, left an extraordinary legacy of local activism in Brixton and beyond.

“We hope that by recognising and celebrating Olive Morris with a Google Doodle, we can inspire others to keep pushing forward for change.”
