Do you remember Olive Morris? was a community art project seeking to bring to wider public attention the history of Brixton-based activist Olive Morris (1952-1979). In her short life, Olive Morris co-founded the Brixton Black Women’s Group and the Organisation of Women of Asian and African Descent (OWAAD) and was part of the British Black Panther Movement. She campaigned for access to education, decent living conditions for Black communities and fought against state and police repression. Despite dying at a young age, she empowered the people who lived and worked around her.
There blog is a central online resource of information on Olive Morris, bringing together the personal memories of those who knew her, and publishing online information and materials relating to her life and the life of the people and organisations that she worked with. It is also a repository of information about the Do You Remember Olive Morris? project and the different individuals and groups that made it possible.
