Google honours Brixton activist Olive Morris

Brixton activist Olive Morris – a member of the Windrush Generation – is the subject of today’s (26 June) Google Doodle – the small illustration that appears on the internet giant’s search engine page.

A link leads to My Heart Will Always Be In Brixton, an exhibition of artwork by Linett Kamala inspired by Olive Morris, who would have been 68 today.

Google also records the work of OWAAD, the Organisation of Women of African and Asian Descent.

The former Lambeth council offices on Brixton Hill, now being demolished, were named in her honour. Campaigners are pressing for a suitable memorial and award for young activists.

Morris died aged just 27 in 1979.
