Patrick Vernon (Every Generation Media)
" This is great news that the Royal Mail for the first time have recognised the achievements of Black Britons and particularly two men who are role models for us all. Lets hope that they can now commerate other achievers and heroes as featured and voted for by the general public and the community on the 100 Great Black Britons website. Every Generation would like to acknowledge the campaign undertaken by Oku Ekpenyon and a number of her colleagues in making this happen'
