Morris dropped out of high school without qualifications but was admitted to the University of Manchester, where he earned a degree in social sciences. Throughout his time at Manchester, Olive Morris continued to fight for the rights of international students, along with his other efforts.
After traveling around the world, he returned to the United Kingdom in 1976 and founded the organization of Asian and African descent. The group was seen as a supporting movement for change in Britain at the time.
Olive Morris tragically died in 1979 at the age of 27 after being diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Although his legacy survives, as today’s doodle – designed by Matt Crixonk – depicts Morris in a portrait on a wall in south London, where he lived with the local population.
