faith1_l Faith moved to Brighton in 1950. She is involved in community activities including attending meetings and networking.

What brought you to Brighton and Hove?

I got married and we moved to Brighton.

What would you change about Brighton and Hove?

Get rid of litter. It is so distressing to see how dirty it is getting.

What would your motto be?

Support each other, I think it’s important that we do help each other where possible and encourage each other.

faithoct02What do you think Black and Minority Ethnic people have contributed to Brighton and Hove?

Well for a start, far more than has ever been given credit for. There are so many things that a lot of people don’t know about and it’s only by us being involved ourselves and finding out about it that it’s now being recorded. Otherwise, if we don’t, it will be lost again like the history of this country.

People don’t realise just how much Black people have actually put into this country from the Roman Legion right up to the present day. It’s only just by us picking on it and putting it out that it is being acknowledged.
