About Maurice McLeod
Maurice McLeod was born in Battersea, London. He grew up on the Surrey Lane Estate and later in Earlsfield, with his mother who was a nurse. Maurice went to Spencer Park School and then got a scholarship to Emmanuel.
Maurice was committed to working on anti-racism, as a result of racial abuse from the community and police whilst growing up and having been stopped and searched countless times.
Then the Grenfell disaster was the catalyst that prompted Maurice to stand as councillor and represent Wandsworths’ under-represented BAME community.
He is also a writer, editor and consultant.
Maurice is now, at the time of writing, the Labour Councillor for Queenstown Battersea, and the Vice-Chair for Race on the Agenda.
