History of Bristol : During the 1960s, there was a lot of open racial discrimination in Bristol, and so in 1963, Owen and others met in Roy Hackett’s home in Easton, and they started the Commonwealth Co-ordinated Committee to highlight the problem. This group supported the boycott of Bristol buses, and Owen campaigned alongside Paul Stephenson, Roy Hackett, Guy Reid-Bailey, Prince Brown and others. The Boycott became well known and had the support of Tony Benn MP and Lord Leary Constantine. Within six months, they were victorious and the Bristol Omnibus Company had to lift their ban on employing Black people. 3:2 Owen Henry Biography Black Bristolians 3 : 2 : 2 5 1 In 1968, the Committee also formed the St. Paul’s Festival Committee. In those days, the celebrations started two weeks before with a knockout competition for the Louis Sealey Cup (Louis Sealey was a Barbadian cricketer). There were different matches and sports that ended on the last day of the festival. The Metropol Cinema which was then at the top of Grosvenor Road was where the Lord Mayor and the judges of the best floats used to sit. This festival, now called the St. Paul’s Carnival, has been running successfully ever since. Don’t forget to follow us #fcmabristol
