Black History Month Special - Mona Baptiste

The information brought to you today has been provided by the Windrush foundation.

Mona Baptiste was one of the few women on board the Empire Windrush but somehow she escaped the attention of the majority of the awaiting press. 

This may be because Miss Baptiste travelled first class, paying twice the fare of the majority of her fellow passengers.

Mona was an up and coming entertainer in Trinidad who’d been singing on the radio and at dances from the age of 14.
