Mary Seacole Hall – Strong Women

Her strength is often underestimated because of her smaller, softer features, 
Her delicate smile and her bassless voice. 
Fragile, feeble, weak are her main descriptors – characteristics coined by cultural mediators.  
Woman, readily undermined, but a stalwart – truly, one of a kind.
Samantha Campbell

As we celebrate Women’s History Month the UWI Museum would like to acknowledge the 60th anniversary of Mary Seacole Hall Dining Room Protest that took place on March 8, 1960.
