Inspired by the success of the BBC's 'Great Britons' in 2002, The Mayor of London announced a poll to find the 100 Great Black Britons to mark Black History Month in October 2003.

In February 2004, Mary Seacole was voted the Greatest Black Briton of all time. The original "lady with the lamp" who tended wounded soldiers in the Crimea was a Jamaican-born nurse who made her own way out to the war. But as she was denied the chance of enlisting with Florence Nightingale, Mary Seacole's contribution has hitherto been overshadowed.

Olaudah Equiano was voted 'The 4th Greatest Black Briton' overall and the Greatest Political Black Briton.
