Darcus Howe (born 26 February 1943)[ is a British broadcaster, writer,  and civil liberties campaigner. Originally from Trinidad, Howe arrived in England intending to study law, where he joined the British Black Panthers, the first such branch of the organisation outside the United States.  He came to public attention in 1970 as one of the Mangrove Nine, when he marched to the police station in Notting Hill, London, to protest against police raids of theMangrove restaurant, and again in 1981 when he organised a 20,000-strong "Black People's March" in protest at the handling of the investigation into the New Cross Fire, in which 13 black teenagers died.
