On this episode, Charlotte sits down with Councillor Graham Campbell. Graham, who is of Jamaican descent, grew up in North London before moving to Scotland permanently in 2002. Graham is a Rastafarian veteran political campaigner and community activist who in May 2017, was elected as Glasgow City Council’s - and Scotland’s - first ever African Caribbean Councillor. As a city Councillor and a proud Scots-Jamaican, Graham has shone a light on the role that Scottish people had in the slave trade and has campaigned for Glasgow to recognise and acknowledge its legacy of Tobacco Lord’s, Sugar Barons and Cotton Kings.
