The Claudia Jones Organisation

This organisation and supplementary school in Hackney offers educational support and other out-of-school activities to children attending mainstream schools. Like most supplementary schools, it was established and managed by community members, generally on a voluntary basis. Its name pays tribute to well-known Black American political activist Claudia Jones. Jones was a Trinidadborn journalist and activist. She was deported from America to the UK in 1955 because of her Black
nationalist and communist political activities. In London she was one of the founders of the Notting Hill Carnival in 1959.
