Afro Europe wrote a post on the appointment of a black female in UK Prime Minister David Cameron's new cabinet and gave a list of black female cabinet members in Europe [Erratum: The blog post was amended to show that Mrs Grant was the first black female Conservative member of parliament and cabinet minister. Baroness Valerie Amos was the first female black cabinet minister in 2003]:

Helen Grant MP has been made a Minister in David Cameron’s Ministerial reshuffle this September. She is now the first female black conservative cabinet Minister in the UK.
