Mary Seacole kids t-shirt

Regular price £20.00

Organic cotton kids t-shirt featuring Mary Seacole.

Born in Kingston, Jamaica, Seacole travelled independently to Balaklava where she helped open the British Hotel, halfway between the harbour and British Headquarters. It served as an officers' club, a canteen for troops and a base for her nursing. She published her memoir Wonderful Adventures of Mrs Seacole in Many Lands in 1857. A familiar figure to British newspaper readers through the reports of William Howard Russell at the time, she was largely forgotten for decades until the development of a Black and Asian historiography from the 1970s which has given her a central place in black British history. Posthumously awarded the Jamaican Order of Merit (1991). Voted the greatest black Briton (2004).
