Overcoming the discrimination she faced in 1940s Britain as the child of a white mother and black father – both Cambridge students at the time, Dame Elizabeth went on to become one of the country’s greatest nurses. From becoming the first ever sickle cell nurse specialist, reuniting with her father (Nigeria’s first ambassador to Italy) to founding the Mary Seacole Centre and being one of the BBC Women of the Year in 2020, she tells her unique story in Dreams From My Mother.
