Black History Month Wales begins this October... And it has given us the perfect excuse to celebrate the fact that Wales is full of brilliant, black Welsh people. To honour this annual event-packed month and this year's 70th anniversary of the Windrush arrivals, we are featuring 100 brilliant Afro Caribbean and African Welsh people who have helped shaped our nation.

[REDACTED DUE TO INSTRUCTIONS FROM ABOVE] Before Big Cup final in 1984, Roma considered the outcome to be in little doubt. Their destiny, to be crowned champions of Europe, would be played out in their own Stadio Olimpico where the swatting aside of Liverpool was considered little more than a formality ahead of the raucous celebrations that would ensue. After watching their team lose the match, Roma’s hubristic fans were determined not to be beaten in the ensuing battle and approximately 10,000 Liverpool fans were subjected to no end of violence as the city of Rome burned with white-hot fury.
