Ewemade Orobator - Chairman

Ewemade is the founder of Our Heritage TV (OHTV) and the President of the Black Minority Ethnic Television Film and Media organisation (BMETVFM) that was formed in 2003. He is also co founder of the new Secondary School in Croydon – Harris Invictus which opened in September 2014.

The inspiration behind OHTV was to end, once and for all, what he saw as “ the dubious concept of Black History Month”. Ewemade feels that Black history was too important and too rich for it to be celebrated at one particular time of the month. With the 24 hour 7 days a week availability of OHTV , its wider focus on all aspects of black history in the UK since 1950, this has been achieved.
