Mary Seacole is important to us.

As part of our Black History Month celebration, we learnt about an important black woman from the past.

Mary Seacole was born in Kingston, Jamaica in 1805. As a child, the young Mary was fascinated with medicine, and from her mother, she began learning many traditional Caribbean and African medicines. Mary gained a wide knowledge in treating endemic illnesses such as yellow fever. We are inspired by her work and life.

Here are some of our work about her life.
