(FYI this video may feature some familiar faces!)
It is a move that will no doubt bring well-deserved awareness of her lifetime of tireless activism to a much wider audience and has already attracted lots of press coverage. Please see articles in The Independent, The Metro, The Mirror, The Sun and The Express.
Also, lots of coverage on twitter:

Connie Mark: why a Google Doodle celebrates activist's 95th birthday. A beautifully fitting tribute to the late Connie Marks. A latter day Mary Seacole who worked tirelessly to ensure Mary was remembered. https://t.co/az1CrCzg4u

Nuff respect to GOOGLE UK for yesterday (20 Dec) sponsoring the last blue plaque of 2018 to WWII Veteran, Windrush and NHS pioneer – the legendary Ms Connie Mark. Today would have been Connie's 95th birthday. Her DOODLE IMAGE is on GOOGLE Search Bar TODAY. Happy Birthday Connie! pic.twitter.com/KXBAxvO1bQ

Today’s #GoogleDoodle features #ConnieMark. So many POC got pressured into joining the armed forces and yet remain almost complete unknown and were denied their rightful recognition. Glad to have seen this today. pic.twitter.com/W5Ipr2Os8T
