Greater Manchester Chamber has joined forces with Google Arts & Culture to celebrate black history and culture in the Black and British project.

Over the next couple of weeks we will be highlighting different parts of the project. Today we feature Five Key Black Figures from Greater Manchester including Edward T Nelson, one of the first black barristers in England; Lemn Sissay MBE (pictured) author and broadcaster; and Olive Morris, community activist.
