Staff Stories – Louis Junior Maycock
Our Director of Party Wall Matters Louis Junior Maycock talks through his early career and how he got to where he is now, as well as his view on representation within the property industry and how he feels we should move forward.
The first Black History Month in the UK took place in 1987, the 150th anniversary of the abolition of slavery in the Caribbean.
It was arranged by Akyaaba Addai-Sebo, who came to the UK from Ghana as a refugee in 1984. Like Woodson before him, he wanted to challenge racism and celebrate the history of black people.
October was chosen partly because it’s traditionally a time when African leaders gather to talk about important issues, and partly because it was at the start of the school year.
