Owen Henry (1928 - 1989)
Jamaican-born, Owen Henry came to Bristol in 1956 braving Teddy Boys and slum housing to co-found the West Indian Development Council which, in 1963, spearheaded the Bristol Bus Boycott Campaign against racial discrimination. By 1967 he was a major force behind the St. Paul’s Carnival and throughout his life challenged the unfair treatment of Black Bristolians.

About Journey to Justice Bristol
The Peoples Republic of Stokes Croft (PRSC) and Journey to Justice Bristol (JToJ) are participating in a project to visualise Bristol’s history of activism and struggles for social justice.
As part of a variety of exciting and innovative activities for the JToJ event throughout October 2017, PRSC is working with JToJ to celebrate and honour key activists in Bristol that have contributed to and inspired the social movement but have not been recognised for their actions. To raise awareness about these people, we feature their likeness and ideas on fine bone china mugs and prints.
