Lord Taylor was the First Black Conservative Parliamentary candidate in British history, and also became the First black Conservative Lord since the 14th Century, when Parliament began. He was the First Black Government Special Advisor in Britain, advising the Home Secretary and Ministers of State.
His message is to “strive to be not only the best in the world, but the best for the world”.
He was also the First Black British University Chancellor. These achievements in themselves offer strong argument for diversity, when sadly even today only 1% of top Board positions in Britain are held by Black and Ethnic minorities.
He has continued to be involved in the widest range of public life yet maintains to dedicate himself for over two decades to promote the cause of Peacemaking, and humanitarian efforts around the world. Lord John Taylor of Warwick is the First Black Baron to open a hospital in his ancestral nation, that of Jamaica.
