The City of London Corporation organised a breakfast session on the 8th of October 2022 to celebrate the start of the black history month. The keynote speaker was the Secretary General of the Commonwealth, Baroness Patricia Scotland, KC who also held a Black History talk with the Kenneth Olisa OBE.
Among other Common Councillors and Alderman, we had the Presence of Luis Felipe Tilleria Limongi who shared with Baroness Scotland the privilege to have been the first Latin American in being appointed to their respective offices.
Curiously, Luis Felipe Tilleria Limongi and Baroness Scotland migrated to the United Kingdom and from humble beginnings they managed to excel within the British University system, their professional careers and they are both passionate about inclusion and equal opportunities for the migrants. Due to their exemplary commitment to the community development they both were elected as representatives to the City of London Corporation; whilst Baroness Scotland was elected in 2014 as Alderman for the Ward of Bishopsgate, Luis Felipe Tilleria Limongi was elected in 2022 as Common Councillor for Billingsgate Ward.
