Penny Wangari-Jones

Penny is a lively and active member of the Bradford community – you’ll often see her at events and activities that have the good of Bradford at heart. Based at an organisation called KIVCA, she currently heads the equalities and inclusion project in Keighley, part of the Racial Justice Network.

Hailing from Kenya, Penny has a deep sense of family values, societal interaction and respect which drives much of her work. She completed an honours degree in Social Sciences at the University of Central Lancashire and has since worked with people on the margins of society, with a special interest in race equality.

Penny has a keen eye for all things unique and fashionable – but minus the succumbing to the pressures of materialism. Her interests include: social, economic and environmental justice, women’s rights, the question of identity, people in the diaspora and reading.

Music: Motown, reggae and jazz.
Book: Animal Farm, by George Orwell.
Poem: Still I Rise, by Maya Angelou.
Pizza topping: Anything spicy!

Penny is inspired by Marcus Garvey, Maya Angelou, Malcolm X and Janelle Monae.

Bradford Catalyst is a discussion show, with a diverse group of young adults talking about current issues in our communities.
