When Simon Woolley created Operation Black Vote in 1996, he inspired hundreds of thousands of people to participate in the democratic process. Raised on an impoverished estate in Leicester, he has become a political force to be reckoned with, the first Black man to head an Oxbridge college and a member of the House of Lords. Hear his inspiring story about perseverance and the change that comes when underrepresented voices join the conversation. Chaired by Baroness Young of Hornsey.
