Way back in the 1970s and early 80s, Melanie Phillips was the Guardian's social affairs correspondent and as 'right-on' (PC wasn't invented then) as you could possibly wish for.
The photo on her byline showed her with an Afro in the style of Marsha Hunt or Angela Davis. I bet she wore fingerless gloves and raggedy-witch skirts, too.
Has anybody got an image of it ? Or any snaps of the Great Goddess in her youthful prime ?
